StageCoach Theatre Company will produce a play reading of “Take Up the Song”, a production that traces the early years in the women’s suffragist movement through the words of its leaders at the Westwood Country Club in Vienna, VA. Supervisor Chairwomen Sharon Bulova (Fairfax County) and Phyllis Randall (Loudoun County) have joined the cast! Turning Point Honorary Board member Dr. Elisabeth Griffith will tie the suffragist movement (purple sashes) to modern-day equal rights activities (pink hats). Musical entertainment will be provided by Capital Harmonia, northern Virginia’s preeminent community women’s chorus.

The play develops a series of dialogues between reporters and suffragists Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Sojourner Truth and others. The script was written by Dr. John Tepper Marlin, former chief economist in the New York City Office of the Controller. Marlin is the great-nephew of Inez Milholland, a lawyer and member of the National Women’s Party who sacrificed her own health and died while campaigning for the right to vote.

Black tie/suffragist attire optional.

Event registration is being handled by the Turning Point Suffragist Memorial Association. Please visit their Eventbrite page here for further details.
