The world premiere of “The Suffragist Reenactment Society,” will be held Saturday, Oct. 2, 7:30 p.m., at Main Street Landing, 60 Lake St., Burlington.

Covering the period between 1848-1920, the play 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 (Charlotte), Sarah Mell (Winooski) and Julia Sioss (Colchester) 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, past and present.

“The Suffragist Reenactment Society” was written by Mary Beth McNulty and directed by Laura Roald.

About one hour in length, the play is appropriate for ages 12 and up. While there is no admission charge, tickets are recommended. Get tickets online at bit.ly/suffragistreenactment.

Patrons are required to wear face coverings while in the theater and show proof of vaccination or negative COVID test.
