Actor/author Prudence Wright Holmes performs her one-woman show based on the life of legendary lesbian author Willa Cather. A courageous pioneer of the LGBT community, Cather dared to dress like a man in a small Nebraska town in the 1890's and was almost expelled from The University of Nebraska for it--that and her love affair with her classmate, Louise Pound. She went on to have a successful career writing novels like My Antonia and Death Comes for the Archbishop. Unlucky in love, Cather's heart was broken by her soul mate and benefactor, Isabelle McClung, but Cather soldiered on, winning a Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1923.
