Monday, we’re talking about a new work by local playwright Jenifer Nii. It’s called “Suffrage,” and it looks at the complicated history between women’s right to vote and polygamy in 19th century Utah. Utah was the second territory in the US to grant suffrage, but in less than two decades, the right was stripped away as part of a national effort to eradicate plural marriage. Nii joins us, along with the director and cast of Plan B Theatre Company’s production to talk about the social and political roles of women.
Plan B Theatre Company's SUFFRAGE runs through April 14 at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in downtown Salt Lake City. More information is available by calling ArtTix at 801-355-ARTS or online at PlanBTheatre.org
