All proceeds will benefit She Should Run, a nonprofit organization committed to “expanding the talent pool of future elected female leaders.”

"A prophetic reflection of the modern political era, Wendy Wasserstein’s An American Daughter follows Lyssa Dent Hughes (Golden Globe winner Keri Russell), an accomplished doctor and the President's newly-named nominee for Surgeon General. While her confirmation at first seems inevitable, Lyssa is stunned when the vetting of her past leads to a scandal that threatens

to derail her future. Emmy, Golden Globe, and Academy Award-winner CHRISTINE LAHTI, directs this moving tale of one woman's choice between sense of duty and sense of self."
