Fireside Chats, A Play in Two Acts by Edward Bloor
Annie rises from a wheelchair to lead us on an extraordinary walk through her life. A spirited, rambunctious girl, Annie is struck down in 1933 by the summer plague, polio. As compensation, she finds she has been given an extraordinary power—the ability to summon people to her in the in-between time. Annie uses her power to summon the four most powerful men in the world—Franklin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, Adolf Hitler, and Joseph Stalin. They interact with Annie, her family, and each other with comic and then tragic consequences.
