Experience the fight for women’s right to vote in The Suffragist Project presented by OdysseyStage. This collection of short plays, written by the Triangle Playwrights, explores the 70+ year fight for woman’s enfranchisement. In promenade-style, audience goers will venture from scene to scene guided by a “silent sentinel” armed with information about what happens next. Each scene depicts moments from the movement, bringing to life well-known advocates like Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Ida B. Wells, and Alice Paul. This show will reveal a glimpse into the lives of these women, the personal sacrifices they made and the fierce opposition to women gaining the vote.
