Name: "Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire" presented by East Lynne Theater Company
Date: August 13, 2017
Time: 8:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT
Event Description:
“Ladies, get what you want. Make home a hell on earth--but do it in a womanly way! This is so much more dignified than dropping a piece of paper into a ballot box," declares Marie Jenney Howe’s unlikely, but likable, heroine. Howe, a pro-suffragist, wrote her "Anti-Suffrage Monologue" in 1912—eight years before women won the vote. Her fictional speaker is a charming, guileless enthusiast who sincerely believes that her efforts as a “womanly woman” will keep the Home intact—and save the Nation from anarchy. Performed by Michele LaRue, who has been touring the country for over 25 years with various one-person shows, is giving a lecture followed by a Q&A, directly after the performance.
