100 YEARS AGO, IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC,
WOMEN WON THE RIGHT TO VOTE.
Do you know the story?
Based on real, historical figures, It's My Party! delves into the turbulent backstory of the fight to pass the 19th Amendment. Facing an uphill battle in Washington, some suffragists employ increasingly radical tactics to make their voices heard, leading to bitter rivalries and a generational split that threatened to tear the suffragists’ movement apart from the inside!
As the 2020 Election approaches, join Echo Theatre to celebrate the Centennial of the 19th Amendment and the incredible true story of the women who made it possible for Half of our Citizens to participate in the political process. This online reading is appropriate for all ages and will be followed by a talk-back with the cast.
It's My Party! was originally developed in conjunction with Pipeline Playwrights. www.pipelineplaywrights.org
