    The Mary Colter Story

This seventy minute play is the poignant story of
a woman ahead of her time. Mary Elizabeth Jane
Colter was one of only a few female architects
working in America at the beginning of the
Twentieth Century.
A Woman by Design
explores the trials of her ground-breaking career
as she works for the Fred Harvey Company to
design buildings throughout the Southwest. A
successful woman in a man's world, Mary was
the first to integrate Native American themes into
commercial architecture while popularizing Native
American arts and crafts. She set a style that is
continued today. Elizabeth Ware (left) plays this
colorful and revolutionary American figure. The
play is now touring and has received excellent
critical and popular reviews.
