This play about Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton and the suffrage movement in the United States is a moving portrayal of struggles, successes and failures. Thoroughly researched, the play takes these women from the pages of history and makes them living crusaders for women's issues. From their decision to be the first women in bloomers to their invasion of male bastions to cast illegal ballots, as they are shot at and driven from cities, audiences hear their message to all women throughout the ages: "Failure is impossible."
"A glittering piece of artistry.... A unique contribution to theatre.... Clear and exciting characters... remain consistent and grow in depth over the period of the drama. Add to this a delightful and occasionally gutsy sense of humor, and the end result is a theatrical tour de force." - Green Sheet
"A joyous portrait of two true children of the 19th century, who believed in the perfectibility of the species and then set out to perfect it.... Quick paced and warm." - The Oregonian
