Join actress MIMI KENNEDY as she discusses Gage’s critique of politicized religion with Gage Director SALLY ROESCH WAGNER.
These two friends chat as they explore Gage’s warning about the conservative Christian attempt to take over the government in her DANGERS OF THE HOUR along with Gage’s vision of a “true” religion of freedom and justice in PUTTING THE FEMALE BACK INTO GOD.
As relevant today as they were when Gage wrote them over 100 years ago, these writings provide the framework for celebrating Gage’s 195 birthday. If you would like to read these provocative readings before the event, order here.
Mimi will be joined by composer/singer COLLEEN KATTAU, presenting her original musical tributes to Matilda Joslyn Gage.
Then come back for a special chat* (Purchased as an add on to the regular admission.)
Join Mimi and Sally as they explore Mimi’s journey to both acting and activism and how she came to know Gage.
Followed by a Q and A and brainstorming with participants about how to bring Gage’s ideas into a theatrical performance.
