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 resonated 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 through November 30. Register now and a link to access the content will be emailed. Cost: $5-$25.
This project is supported in part by generous grants from Baird Family Wealth Group, the City of Dallas Office of Arts and Culture, Communities Foundation of Texas and the Embrey Family Foundation.
