100 YEARS AGO, IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC,
WOMEN WON THE RIGHT TO VOTE.
Do you know the true 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!
It's My Party! was originally developed in conjunction with Pipeline Playwrights.
