The Agitators

  • Share:
Name: The Agitators
Date: September 14, 2018 - October 7, 2018
Event Description:
The Agitators tells of the enduring but tempestuous friendship of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. Great allies? Yes. And at times, great adversaries. Young abolitionists when they met in Rochester in the 1840s, they were full of hopes, dreams, and a common purpose. As they grew to become the cultural icons we know today, their movements collided, and their friendship was severely tested. This is the story of that 45-year friendship – from its beginning in New York, through a Civil War, and to the highest halls of government. They agitated the nation, they agitated each other and, in doing so, they helped shape the Constitution and the course of American history. Experience the history as these two monumental icons come alive on stage. Direction by Jacqueline Parker – The Agitators runs September 14 through October 7th at Gloucester Stage. Performances are Wednesday through Saturday at 7:30pm and Saturday and Sunday at 2:00pm.
