Event Description
Too Many Questions

The First Universalist Church of Rochester and First Unitarian Church of Rochester celebrate Women's History Month with a play commemorating civil rights activist Virginia Foster Durr. This one-person drama titled "Too Many Questions" was written by Lee Shackleford in 2009, and takes place in Virginia Durr's home in Montgomery, Alabama in 1955, following the incarceration of Rosa Parks for refusing to give up her bus seat to a white person. The play reveals the transformation of Mrs. Durr from a pampered southern belle to a civil rights activist as she entertains company and fields calls from her attorney husband about Mrs. Parks’ plight—except that when the phone rings, it isn’t always her husband on the other end.

Starring Ginny S. Loggins. Ginny S. Loggins first played Virginia Durr in 2009 at Vulcan Park and Museum in Birmingham, Alabama, and is honored to have been asked to portray this wonderful woman again this year. After 25 years in Alabama, she has recently returned to her northeastern roots. Favorite roles in the Birmingham area include Lady Macbeth , Dorine in Tartuffe, Maxine in Night of the Iguana, Reggie in The Laramie Project, Birdie in The Little Foxes, Sara Jane Moore in Assassins, Susie the Nurse in Wit, the title role in Mame, Ruth the Pirate Maid in Pirates of Penzance, Gertrude in Hamlet, and Mrs. Webb in Our Town. Ginny also portrays Alabama reformer Julia Tutwiler in Kathryn Tucker Windham’s one-woman play My Name is Julia. She is a graduate of the Drama Department at The Catholic Univer­sity of America and had acting internships at CSC Repertory in New York and The Barter Theatre in Virginia.


“Too Many Questions: An Evening with Virginia Durr” was originally commissioned by and performed at Vulcan Park and Museum, Birmingham, Alabama. It was written in 2009 by Lee Eric Shackleford, Resident Playwright at the University of Alabama in Birmingham.

Preceding the performance at 7:00 p.m. will be several musical selections from the era sung by Glenda Brayman of Madrigalia.
