Support National Women’s History Month at GW

March is National Women’s History Month, and the National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) is hosting several events at the Lisner Auditorium on Saturday, March 2 to mark the occassion.

At 11:00am, NWHM presents the multi-media lecture program, “3 Generations Fighting for Women’s Right to Vote.”

Hear the story of the heroines, heroes and villains that made up the three generations fighting for women’s right to vote. The event is free & open to the public.

At 2:00pm and 8:00pm on Saturday, March 2, there will be two staged readings of the off-broadway play, TAKE WHAT IS YOURS.

NWHM has partnered with anecdota, a New York-based theatre company, to present powerful multimedia staged readings of TAKE WHAT IS YOURS, dubbed “…a psychological thriller about the woman’s suffrage movement riveting…powerful” by The New York Times.

Composed in the words of Alice Paul, the National Woman’s Party and documents of the time, TAKE WHAT IS YOURS is being adapted for large audiences by its co-writers Erica Fae and Jill A. Samuels.

The multimedia staged readings will feature New York actors Erica Fae as Alice Paul during her imprisonment in 1917, and Wayne Maugans as “The Man.”  Accompanied by video from the play with a stunning original sound score.

An open discussion will be held after the reading with co-writers Erica Fae and Jill A. Samuels.

The GW Lisner Auditorium is located at 730 21st Street NW (H St.), Washington, DC 20052. The staged readings are being held as a fundraiser in support of the National Women’s History Museum.
