The years: 1888-1900 The locations: Philadelphia, Deadwood, Council Bluffs, and Los Angeles The woman: Annie Mae Steinberg Her goal: Escape a hum-drum life to become an actress on the stage.
Things are never what they seem. And people follow suit. Known to her friends as Mae — Annie Mae Steinberg, a young Jewish woman from Philadelphia, is an adventurer and a dreamer who naively refuses to accept the status quo. Her dream to become an actress never fades as life nudges, and sometimes shoves her forward. Mae travels from the Atlantic to the Pacific, learning lessons from the sort of people she never expected to meet, a lifestyle she never envisioned, and a death she never planned. Will she ever return home?
The House lights dim...the foot lamps are ablaze. Ladies and Gentlemen, please take your seats. The curtain is about to go up.
