Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire on Monday, March 12 at 6:30 pm at the Union Public Library. Join us to celebrate Women's History Month with this live first person interpretation about the sociological, historical, and political context of the time period.
For decades, countless American women fought for the right to vote. But many others—like the costumed fictional Anti-Suffragist portrayed in this program—fought against it. Written by Pro-Suffragist Marie Jenney Howe in 1912, this witty, insightful satire sheds light on some of the apparently absurd arguments offered by those opposed to the Suffrage movement.
Performed live by Michèle LaRue, First Person Interpreter, and directed by Warren Kliewer. Michele has specialized in performances from America’s Gilded Age for twenty-five years and tours nationally with her one-woman repertoire of Tales Well Told. She is a member of Actors’ Equity Association and SAG-AFTRA; as an editor, she has collaborated on numerous notable theater books and periodicals.
