Four seasoned actors voice the humor and passion of the amazing Hazel Wolf (1898-2000), Audubon champion, activist, and community leader with strong ties to the Northwest. The play is based on the book "Hazel Wolf: Fighting the Establishment," by Susan Starbuck. Author Rebecca Redshaw’s staged reading—in honor of this extraordinary woman—is in Hazel’s own words, wit and wisdom. Fittingly, April 26 is also the birthday of John James Audubon (1785-1851).

A reception with light refreshments and a tour of the Tribal campus will follow the reading The River Center and Olympic Peninsula Audubon Society are proud to sponsor this event in recognition of the contributions of both Hazel Wolf and of her granddaughter Ann Sargent, who serves as secretary on the River Center Board.

Playwright and author Rebecca Redshaw worked in the film industry in Los Angeles for 20 years before moving to the northwest to write full time. She has published articles and short stories in national publications and magazines.
