Living Literature presents a two-person, 45-minute readers theatre program reviewing the decades-long struggle for American women to achieve the vote, using a collage of writings and speeches of Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lucy Stone, Alice Paul, Carrie Catt, and Elizabeth Buffum Chace, among others, as they share the journey of the women’s struggle for equality that led to the passing of the 19th Amendment. This presentation is made possible in part by a gift from the League of Women Voters of RI Education Fund.

Living Literature is a collective of Rhode Island-based artists and educators who create readers theatre-style presentations to dramatize non-dramatic writing. Using only the authors’ words, these presentations allow the audience to experience the events and characters of the story in an unique way. Since its inception in January of 1996, Living Literature has created over 100 programs based on poems, stories, novels, plays, essays, biographies, articles, and oral histories. They have presented the works of more than 100 different authors, and done presentations in over 50 schools, more than 40 libraries, and many other community venues throughout southeastern New England.
