“Peggy” is a 45-minute play about the life of “Gone With The Wind” author Margaret Mitchell. Effective in close-read drama and literature classes as well as the study of the Civil War and the South in History classes, “Peggy”, dramatizes the life of a woman who realized, as a child, that the last battle of the Civil War was fought forty years before she was even born and that the South had lost. Her career began as a journalist who believed she was never a born-writer but a made-writer. “Peggy” was first produced at the Tight Squeeze Festival in Atlanta which celebrated the anniversary of the publishing of the book “Gone With The Wind”; won first place at a Decatur, Georgia Theatre; produced at Callanwolde in Atlanta, Georgia; and was featured in a Doctoral thesis of a Russian author at Moscow University. Engaging and thought-provoking, "Peggy" sheds light on the Civil War and the process of writing.
