Lillian Carter was much more than President Jimmy Carter’s mother – she was a social activist, great humanitarian, nurse, Peace Corps volunteer, peanut farmer, and fisherman. This one- woman play introduces us to a woman who was undaunted by Southern social mores or peer pressure, who nurtured the best human qualities in all with whom she interacted. This show both entertains and educates. Filled with engaging stories and amusing anecdotes, the play takes the audience through the journey of Miss Lillian’s life, and beyond. All of the events presented in this play are real: no names have been changed to protect the innocent as there are no “innocents.”

Playwright and actress Carol Swarbrick stars and will also host a talk-back session with the audience immediately following the performance. For over 40 years, Sequim resident Carol Swarbrick has performed on musical theatre stages around the world, including four Broadway shows thus far. She has also starred in a good number of television series and specials, Movies of the Week and feature films.
