East Lynne Theatre Company presents "Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire"
"Someone Must Wash the Dishes: An Anti-Suffrage Satire" is a one-woman show performed by Michele LaRue. "Woman suffrage is the reform against nature," declares Marie Jenney Howe's unlikely, but irresistibly likeable, heroine. Howe, a pro-suffragist, wrote her Anti-Suffrage Monologue in 1912-eight years before women at last won the vote. Her fictional speaker is a charming, guileless enthusiast who sincerely believes that her efforts as a "womanly woman" will keep the Home intact-and save the Nation from anarchy.
