Leader of Women’s Suffrage, Lucy Stone, Transports Audiences Back in Time!

Posted by

History At Play™ has garnered nationwide attention for their one-woman living history performances, chronicling the lives of legendary women who changed society. The fiery performance in I Now Pronounce You Lucy Stone has received accolades from journalists, actors, and historians alike and was featured on the WGBH Forum, a series of lectures and performances selected by WGBH to be streamed online. Now, in honor of Women’s History Month and the centennial of Women’s Suffrage in 2020, Lucy Stone travels to Denver, Colorado to tell her incredible story at the Secular Hub, 3100 Downing St. on February 22, 2020 at 4:00 pm. This performance recalls Lucy Stone’s 1877 tour of Colorado when the suffragist campaigned for women’s right to vote.

In this presentation of I Now Pronounce You Lucy Stone, History At Play Founder and Artistic Director Judith Kalaora is Lucy Stone: The first woman from Massachusetts to earn a college degree, a fierce abolitionist, and a women’s rights activist. Challenging discrimination is not easy, but Lucy Stone is never one to take the easy road. Even Susan B. Anthony credited Lucy Stone for her involvement in the tumultuous women’s rights movement. The fight for suffrage is ferocious, so come along for the ride!

Featured in news media outlets, including WCVB Boston, CBS WBZ Radio, The Associated Press, and The Washington Times, History At Play Founder and Artistic Director Judith Kalaora expressed the delight and difficulty in portraying one of the first women in the Abolitionist and Suffragist Movements, Lucy Stone. Jordan Rich, of WBZ Radio (The Jordan Rich Show), states, “She’s a one-woman force of nature and inhabits these women…it takes people like Judith to bring these stories to life…these lost pieces of history.” The West Brookfield Historical Commission, located in Lucy Stone’s hometown, emphasized, “Judith’s performance had the audience laughing, crying, nodding and shaking their heads in agreement and understanding, and climaxing in a standing and cheering ovation… the emotional journey that was Lucy’s growth and development was a gift and an experience the audience will long remember… we deeply understood both the woman and the values she fought for.”
