A Reading of a New Play
Written and performed by Kim Schultz  
Directed by Laurie Flanigan Hegge
Streaming May 3-9

The story of the indomitable Dorothy Molter, the last legal non-indigenous resident of the Boundary Waters, presented by playwright and performer Kim Schultz. Her solo performance reflects on the beauty and hardships of Molter’s solitary yet satisfying life and pushes back against the premise that her time in the North Woods made her the “Loneliest Woman in America,” as the Saturday Evening Post claimed in 1952. Funny. Smart. Passionate.
