Reading of a new play by Christine Kallman

Women March on Washington is a full-length stage play based on the women’s marches on Washington of 1913, 1978 and 2017, using historical and fictional characters. Bags packed, they head out across the country (and over decades) to the nation’s center of power. What will they bring? White gloves and a Bible? Heavy boots and the Pill? A pink hat? A hijab? The diverse travelers encounter suffragist Alice Paul, early civil rights leader Ida Wells-Barnett, 1970’s ERA proponents (and opponents), and women of today. Battling enormous obstacles, including their own doubts and disagreements, all arrive in Washington together, asking: “Whose march is it?” and “What are the stakes?”

Women March on Washington is a new play in development and will be presented script-in-hand. The rehearsal and reading of the script are invaluable parts in the process of the script revision and development.

SEMAC logo  This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts & cultural heritage fund.
