Representation and How to Get It: A play inspired by Julia Ward Howe
When: Saturday, September 23 at 7pm and Sunday, September 24 at 1pm in the Sanctuary
Representation and How to Get It brings the visionary politics of Julia Ward Howe into our own time. Author of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, writer, human rights activist, and Unitarian preacher, she prophesied our nation’s crisis today when she said that one day we would lose our democracy — if this country remains an America for some of us, and not an America for all of us. The stakes are high, and Julia demands to know: what are we doing about it? Elaine Vaan Hogue stars as Julia Ward Howe in this production directed by Judy Braha.
On Saturday, there will be a talkback with the playwright, director, and actor about the genesis and creation of the play, and what makes artists want to take on civic-minded projects and activism in the arts.
On Sunday, there will be a talkback moderated by director Judy Braha, about leadership, community action, and personal journeys in activism with Rev. Rebecca Bryan (First Religious Society), Heather Shand (Newburyport City Council President, Councilor, Ward 3), Afroz Khan (Newburyport City Councilor-at-large), and Sunny Douglas (City of Newburyport DEI).
