Was Shakespeare a feminist? This year marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which gave many women the right to vote. To honor this historic milestone, Shakespeare Dallas explores how Shakespeare’s works influenced the fight.
Led by Associate Artistic Director Jenni Stewart, Shakespeare and the Suffragists is a new virtual performance project that examines Shakespeare’s more feminist texts and how they have been interpreted and reinterpreted over time. How would his characters and monologues resonate in the 1920s? Or in the Elizabethan era? And, ultimately, what can we take from them today? Featured in the Dallas Morning News, this provocative work will be available for streaming in mid-October. You can pre-register now and a link to access the content will be emailed beginning October 15.
When: October 15 through November 30, 2020
Where: Virtual; access link provided beginning October 15
