Join Speranza Theatre Company for VOTES FOR WOMEN, a one-act play written by Jennie Contuzzi.
It's 1913, and, thousands of women gather in Washington, D.C.. They are there to call for a constitutional amendment guaranteeing women the right to vote. While the fight for suffrage has been going on for 60 years, this huge parade, spearheaded by Alice Paul and the National American Woman Suffrage Association, marks the first major national event for the movement. For a family audience of all ages, this emotional story is told from the perspective of the women who led the charge, and paved the way for the fight for equality.
Performances are August 21 - 28, 2020 at 7:00 PM. All performances are free and open to the public.
All performances have a runtime of 45 minutes, no intermission, at various locations around Jersey City including: Berry Lane Park, Van Vorst Park, The Apple Tree House, Leonard Gordon Park, and Audubon Park.**
**Masks are required for all audience members. Reservations preferred to help assure social distancing.
