Info

A dramatic performance to celebrate women's history month! Many women fought against getting the vote in the early 1900s, but none with more charm, prettier clothes--and less logic--than the fictional speaker in this satiric monologue written by pro-suffragist Marie Jenney Howe, back in 1912. "Woman suffrage is the reform against nature," declares Howe's unlikely, but irresistibly likeable, heroine.

"Ladies, get what you want. Pound pillows. Make a scene. Make home a hell on earth--but do it in a womanly way! That is so much more dignified and refined than walking up to a ballot box and dropping in a piece of paper!"

Reviewers have called this production "wicked" in its wit, and have labeled Michèle LaRue's performance "side-splitting." An Illinois native, now based in New York, LaRue is a professional actress who tours nationally with a repertoire of shows by turn-of-the-previous-century American writers.
