Three young women determine to remake the world. They start by reconstructing a lost play. In 1913, Susanne R. Day staged a ‘little propaganda play’ in a fundraiser for women fighting for the vote. She had been fearless before, in her arguments, her commitments and her politics. She believed women should participate in all the big decisions and meant to prove it with her life. One hundred years later, three young women discover the stakes are just as high for them. Fringe Award-winners Painted Bird reconstruct the text of Day’s lost play, imagining what might have been.
