Covering the period 1848-1920, the Suffragist Reenactment Society is a fast-paced journey through the history of how women fought for and won the right to vote in the United States.
Vermont actors Kathryn Blume, Sarah Mell, and Julia Sioss reenact the determination of suffragists from Susan B. Anthony to Ida B. Wells while addressing the complex interplay of race and gender in the suffrage movement and its continuing impact. 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.
The Suffrage Reenactment Society, proudly presented by the Vermont Suffrage Centennial Alliance as part of its mission to commemorate the centennial of women winning the vote, is written by Mary Beth McNulty and directed by Laura Roald.
With a running time a little over 60 minutes, the play is appropriate for ages 14 and up. While there is no admission charge, tickets are recommended. You can reserve tickets online at https://bit.ly/suffragistreenactment
