'American Radical'

When: Sat., Feb. 6, 3 p.m. 2016

Of women’s rights pioneer Elizabeth Cady Stanton, actress Kate Redway says, “I could not believe that I had never known of her contribution to women’s rights, rights I have as a woman today.” Stanton’s story so inspired Redway that she set out to write a play based on the 19th-century activist who sparked some of the country’s earliest women’s suffrage movements. Pulling from Stanton’s own writings, Redway and cowriter Stephen Rosenfield have crafted American Radical, a biographical drama that sheds light on both the public and private realms of the historical figure’s life. Jane Mandel directs Redway in a staged reading of the work, presented by Middlebury Actors Workshop and Town Hall Theater.

Price: Free.
