About the play…

In this short, cialis one-act play, the story of suffragist Alice Paul is presented as a professional staged reading. The show is about Alice Paul and some of the women who marched, picketed, and were even imprisoned for their belief that all women deserved the right to vote. Alice Paul has become a heroine and symbol of the suffrage movement. Her indomitable spirit, courage, determination and resourceful political strategies, joined together with the efforts of women across the United States, led to the ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920.

Five actors in multiple roles, aided by a cinematic panorama of vintage photographs, portray the individuals who changed the political and social landscape of the early twentieth century. This new play, designed for audiences age 12 and over, was written by local playwright/actress Margie O. Tompros, who was inspired by the story of the suffragists imprisoned at the Workhouse in 1917.
