SKOWHEGAN — “Mrs. Smith Goes to Washington,” a one-woman play starring actor Sally Jones is planned for 2 p.m. Sunday at the Skowhegan Opera House. Doors open at 1:30 p.m. Tickets cost $10 for adults, $7 for student and are available at the Margaret Chase Smith Library, Russakoff Jewelers in Skowhegan or at the door.

This original production was written by playwright Linda Britt, a professor at the University of Maine at Farmington.

The story illustrates the journey Smith took from the small town of Skowhegan to become a powerful U.S. Senator at a time when it was a male-dominated world. After the hour-long performance, “Smith” will return to the stage to give the audience a change to share personal stories of Smith.

GFWC Skowhegan Three is bringing the play to Sen. Smith’s birthplace as a fundraiser to provided the Skowhegan Woman’s Aid Society with much needed winter fuel assistance for the elderly.

The performance is made possible through generous sponsorship from Skowhegan Savings and the University of Maine Margaret Chase Smith Library.

For more information, call Lynnette King at 474-7133.
