Revolutionary Women™

Join storyteller Darci Tucker for a one-woman, three-character interactive play that explores the issues and events that led up to the American Revolution, and the role women played in early American history.

Synopsis:
The American Revolution deeply divided the American people. The population was split into thirds: those who remained loyal to the King were just as numerous as those who wanted independence, and the final third either couldn’t decide or didn’t really care.

Women’s options for acting upon their political beliefs were limited.  They could not vote, hold political office or fight in the military.  But many did what they could to support the cause, by writing letters, manufacturing supplies, and passing military intelligence when they encountered it.  A tiny handful even disguised themselves as men and joined the fight.

Meet three women who were involved in the American Revolution. Listen to their stories and ponder whether you’d have had as much courage as they had!
