This play is a retrospective look to 1952 when Charlotte Whitton of Renfrew was first elected Mayor of Ottawa. She struck some people as a cantankerous soul, a bit of a curmudgeon. She was a pioneer in that she was the first female to be elected Mayor of Ottawa. The play is based on the 1910 Renfrew Millionaires hockey season. Charlotte (Lottie) was the team's mascot and for her 14th birthday, she was guest of honour on the bench and the game against Ottawa was dedicated to her. In the play, Charlotte states that evrything she learned about competing in a man's world she learned during that hockey season of 1910. Perhaps her most famous quote is: "Whatever women do they must to twice as well as men to be considered half as good. Luckily, it's not that difficult."
