World Premiere #57: A Central Works Method Musical

“Shout the revolution of women!”

Strange Ladies is the story of a diverse group of Suffragists fighting to gain the vote for women as the US enters the First World War in 1917. Torn between loyalty to their political cause, and loyalty to the war effort, these women each struggle to make difficult choices in a time of tremendous social upheaval. The personal pits each against the political in Strange Ladies – all told with the music of the period.

2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the imprisonment of the “Silent Sentinels” in Occoquan Workhouse Prison. These women were arrested and sent to jail for picketing the White House and demanding the right to vote. Their brutal treatment and subsequent hunger strike forced the issue of “Woman Suffrage” into the national consciousness. 2020 will mark the centenary of the ratification of the 19th amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote.
