Minnetonka Theatre Presents HONK & HOLLER

Minnetonka Theatre is going to State for the MSHSL One Act Competition with HONK & HOLLER.

It's 1972. Carolyn Whitener is the owner of the Honk & Holler, a drive-up dive bar in the college town of Stillwater, Oklahoma. Carolyn becomes the reluctant plaintiff in a historic Supreme Court case argued by Ruth Bader Ginsburg (The Notorious RBG!), a young lawyer at the ACLU, who convinces an all-male Supreme Court to take discrimination against women seriously by bringing a case against the young men who frequent Carolyn’s establishment. It’s a remarkable story of two very different women and how, together, they change the world.

This world premiere one act play is adapted with permission from NPR and Radiolab from one of their most popular podcast episodes. Directed by Lauren Bartelt and Trent Boyum, Minnetonka Theatre is excited to bring this remarkable true story to the stage.
