EXTENDED RUN: The Agitators by Mat Smart and directed by Bill Taylor
EXTENDED DUE TO POPULAR DEMAND!
Jan 31 at 7:30 p.m.
Feb 3 at 2 p.m.
Inspired by the enduring but tempestuous four-decade-long friendship between Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. As they grew to become the cultural icons we know today, their movements collided and their friendship was severely tested. This series of powerful vignettes tells their story, from their meeting in Rochester, through a Civil War and to the highest halls of government. They agitated the nation, they agitated each other and, in doing so, they helped shape the Constitution and the course of American history.
This production is sponsored by Janet and Bruce Bunch.
Audio Descriptor Performance: Feb. 3. For theatregoers who are blind, or have moderate to severe vision loss, the Alliance will provide a specially trained describer who verbalizes what’s happening on stage during pauses in dialogue. The describer uses a headset microphone, while individuals using the service listen through a receiver with a single earpiece. Reservation of headsets is required prior to the show by calling 239-939-2787.
