Many women fought against getting the vote in the early 1900s, but none with more charm, prettier clothes—and less logic—than the fictional speaker in this satiric monologue written by pro-suffragist Marie Jenney Howe, back in 1912.
“Woman suffrage is the reform against nature,” declares Howe’s unlikely, but irresistibly likeable, heroine, LaRue. “Ladies, get what you want. Pound pillows. Make a scene. Make home a hell on earth—but do it in a womanly way! That is so much more dignified and refined than walking up to a ballot box and dropping in a piece of paper!”
Reviewers have called this production “wicked” in its wit, and have labeled Michèle LaRue’s performance “side-splitting.”
And on Sunday, March 3, at 3:00 PM, you can find her at the Fairfield Museum and History Center.
On that day, the Fairfield, Westport, Norwalk, and Greater Bridgeport LWVs bring you Michéle LaRue—tongue firmly tucked into cheek—in the one-woman farce “Someone Must Do the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire.”
Bring your daughters, granddaughters—sons and grandsons, too.
For League or Fairfield Museum and History Center members, the charge is $10. Otherwise, it’s $15. That includes a reception after the performance (which
includes a Q&A!).
Reservations are strongly recommended. Make checks payable to the LWV Fairfield and send by February 20 to Pat Reilly, 738 Beach Road, Fairfield, CT 06824.
The Dowager Countess of Grantham would approve.
