“Elizebeth” is one of the composite of one-woman plays collectively titled Louisiana Women written by Carolyn Woosley.  Elizebeth Thomas Werlein, a native of Michigan who married into the renowned New Orleans Werlein family, is best known for her vigorous, colorful and successful effort to save New Orleans’s slum-like French Quarter from almost certain demolition before World War II, as well as for the belief that she is, allegedly, the first woman to have flown in an airplane as a passenger.

The role of Elizebeth will be read by Carolyn Woosley in Ms. Woosley’s premier acting performance.  Joy Pace is Director and Producer.  There will not be an intermission.  Seating is limited.
