Bare Stage/Simple Set

The scene is a courtroom in upstate New York, where Susan B. Anthony is on trial for the crime of casting a ballot. Tempers flare, animosities run high, and insults are traded as the fiery defendant of woman's rights challenges the ruling of the court—determined to resist bigotry and injustice.

Drawn from the actual court records, this imaginative and compelling courtroom drama deals with the trial of Susan B. Anthony, an early champion of women's liberation who dared to fight for her constitutional right to vote.
