My latest full length play, “A is for Adeline,” inspired by the 19th Century writer Adeline Dutton Train Whitney, is getting a second staged reading tonight through the Loud and Unladylike Festival that I co-founded with Rachel Bublitz and Claire Rice as part of DivaFest at The EXIT Theatre. All three of us will present our new plays in this development workshop series.
Loud and Unladylike is dedicated to presenting stories that feature complex historical women that most people don’t know much about. In “A is for Adeline,” I’m building a story around the complex and conflicting attitudes that people had about women’s roles in society and a home and specifically whether or not they should have the right to vote.
Join me tonight to hear a reading of this piece and offer comments and feedback afterwards.
