Winston Churchill’s mother, Jennie Jerome, like many daughters of wealthy Americans at the time married a British nobleman. The women gained a title and the nobleman some additional funds. The play Lady Randy, written by Anne Undeland, who also plays Jennie Jerome, is an absorbing look at this remarkable woman. Besides reflecting a particular moment in history, the play is an outstanding theatrical experience with all aspects of the production coming together to keep the audience enthralled.
