The New York State Archives Partnership Trust invites the public to attend a free theatrical production about women’s suffrage.
The story moves chronologically from the early 1830s through the 1920 passage of the so-called Susan B. Anthony amendment – with Kimberly and Iris taking on the personas of famous figures from the suffrage movement, as well as “newsboys” announcing important dates and events.
As the play moves forward, Iris and Kimberly are galvanized by the struggle of the women throughout the world, who helped to get the vote. By the end of the play, the two women are celebrating the achievement of the suffragists, and looking forward to the continued work ahead.
A 15 minute post-show talk back with the Capital Repertory Theatre performers immediately follows – bring your questions and insights!
