On February 8-9, 1894, Susan B. Anthony hosted a Woman’s Suffrage Convention at Hubbard Hall in Cambridge, NY.  We received a NY State Council on the Arts grant last year for $30K to create a new play based on this history with local students and adults writing on issues of women’s rights, the Woman’s Suffrage Movement and our local ties to this history.  From September through February, we conducted writing workshops in schools and at the Hall with writers of all ages and backgrounds.  We took these writings and created an original script that explores these issues and integrates an existing song cycle about Ms. Anthony by local artist Bob Warren, entitled Only the Message Mattered.  This new theatrical piece with music has been produced at Hubbard Hall and will be performed October 16 through the 18th, 2020. The play is about Susan B. Anthony, her convention at Hubbard Hall in 1894, her deep friendship with Mary Hubbard and issues of Women’s Rights in the U.S. today.  Theater has been used to teach students our local history tied to the Woman’s Suffrage Movement, and to empower all of us to continue the work in pursuit of Equality for All.
