Just over 100 years ago, women in this country gained the right to vote. Women in Washington State won the vote in 1920 due to the work of two women – Emma Smith DeVoe and May Arkwright Hutton. MAY’s VOTE is a play about these two interesting and very different women. In celebration of them, the play will be brought to you virtually on April 17, at 7 p.m., by the Rainforest Council for the Arts, the Lloyd Allen Trust, and the North Olympic History Center.
MAY’S VOTE, recorded for COVID times, is produced by Key City Public Theatre in Port Townsend. The performance on April 17 is especially for Clallam County. The actors will give a live introduction and then be available for a post-play discussion that will include references to local history, including two suffragists who lived in Port Angeles and are buried there.
Go to keycitypublictheatre.org for your free ticket to the April 17 performance of MAY’S VOTE. The play is also available on April 15, hosted by other organizations.
Rainforest Council for the Arts picked April 17 as the date for our performance of the play since this normally would be Rainfest weekend in Forks. It is our chance to see a play, so settle in and enjoy the show!
