Now Playing:

An American Daughter

By Wendy Wasserstein

Directed by Leslee Richards

Set in Washington D.C., An American Daughter focuses on the nomination of Dr. Lyssa Dent Hughes to a Cabinet post. During the media run-up to her confirmation hearings, an indiscretion is uncovered. Partisan politics are nothing compared to the personal politics in Lyssa's living room, where complicated relationships with her father, her husband and her best girlfriend unravel—not to mention the encounters Lyssa has with an exuberant neo-feminist author and a relentless journalist.
