New Play Reading – PERSEVERANCE
Monday | November 4 | 7:00 pm
PERSEVERANCE was commissioned to commemorate the centennial of women’s suffrage. The fictional story explores the lives of two women occupying the same physical space 100 years appart.
Perseverance Turner, an African-American schoolteacher, writer, and suffragist, is determined to elevate her students above the circumstances in which they were born. One hundred years later, in the same small town of Hillcroft, Maine, Dawn Davis, a white schoolteacher, is running for office on a platform of education reform. As the two women’s stories intertwine, ownership of history takes center stage.
