The Suffragist Reenactment Society

October 22 @ 7:30 pm

 

Bennington Performing Arts Center

| Free
actors in Suffagist play

Presented by: Vermont Suffrage Centennial Alliance, this Vermont created original play is a funny, fast-paced journey through the history of how women fought for and won the right to vote in the U.S.

The characters, played by Kathryn Blume, Sarah Mell (a VCW Commissioner) and Julia Sioss, embody the determination of suffragists from Ida B. Wells to Susan B. Anthony while addressing the complex interplay of race and gender in the suffrage movement and the ongoing fight for voting rights today. Full of facts, fun, and historical figures, the play asks audiences to consider the stories we hear, and more importantly, those we don’t, when we teach and learn about the history of social movements.

Created by Vermont playwright Mary Beth McNulty and directed by Laura Roald, the show is interactive and suitable for all ages.

For the safety of staff, patrons, and guests, everyone is required to wear a face covering while in the theater and show proof of vaccination or negative COVID test.
