THE ATHEIST MOTHER
THE ATHEIST MOTHER is a play based on the life of Madalyn Murray O'Hair, the woman who led the fight to ban prayer in Americas public schools. Written by Willard Manus and directed by Judith Rose. The World Premiere drama is produced by Write Act Repertory's Producing Artistic Director John Lant and Jonathan Harrison is the associate producer.

The cast consists of Sam Aaron, Carlos Chavez, Taylor Donlan, Kevin Kelly, and Helen Siff.

THE ATHEIST MOTHER will have its world premiere Sunday October 16th, 2022 at 2pm playing 5 weekends at the Brickhouse Theatre in North Hollywood and will run through November 13th, 2022.

O'Hair's battle to take God out of our classrooms became a cause celebre in 1961.  The legal case was contested bitterly over the next two years, culminating in the 1963 Supreme Court decision holding that bible reading and prayer recitation in public schools were impermissible under the doctrine of separation of church and state articulated in the first amendment to the U.S. constitution.

O'Hair's enraged enemies in religious and political circles denounced the high courts decision and called her the most hateful woman in America.  

Performances are Saturday nights at 8pm, Sunday matinees at 2pm. Running time is 100 minutes, with intermission.

The Brickhouse Theatre is located at 10950 Peach Grove St., North Hollywood, CA 91601 (off Vineland, just north of Camarillo). $25 general admission, $20 Seniors 60+, open seating.
