    The Suffragist Reenactment Society, an original play, completes its Vermont tour with a final performance in Montpelier. Covering the period 1848-1920, the Suffragist Reenactment Society is a fast-paced journey through the history of how women fought for and won the right to vote in the United States. Vermont actors Kathryn Blume, Sarah Mell, and Julia Sioss reenact the determination of suffragists from Susan B. Anthony to Ida B. Wells while addressing the complex interplay of race and gender in the suffrage movement and its continuing impact. Full of fun, facts, and historical figures, the play asks audiences to consider the stories we hear and, more importantly, those we don’t, when we teach and learn about the history of social movements. With a running time of approximately 60 minutes, the play is appropriate for ages 12 and up. For the safety of staff, patrons, and guests, face coverings while in the theater and proof of vaccination or negative COVID test are require
