A Celebration of the 2020 Women's Vote Centennial - August 26, 2020, 7:00pm

Play by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Directed by Ginny Ives* - A Partnership with The League of Women Voters Columbia Area

Trustus Theatre is partnering with The League of Women’s Voters of Columbia to celebrate the 2020 Women’s Vote Centennial by bringing you a reading of Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s 1911 activist play, Something to Vote For. Mrs. May Carroll is the new president of the Women’s Club, a group of ladies who discuss important decisions within the community while forbidding the discussion of women’s suffrage. However, when the group must come together to discuss their views on “pure milk,” the right to vote is at the center of the conversation. Can women truly influence their community without their place at the poll? Charlotte Perkins Gilman explores the need for women’s voices in issues affecting their community, issues many women still face today. The evening will include a reading of Something to Vote For – a play from Gilman’s groundbreaking 1911 magazine The Forerunner – as well as a welcome from Producing Artistic Director Chad Henderson, an introduction from Ginny Ives (Director), and a musical performance by Trustus company member Katie Leitner.
