SPC dean writes and directs online play

Suffragettes from the early 1900s hold up a sign reading votes for women

The theater company West Coast Players, Inc. will be putting on an online play titled Rightfully Hers: A Tale of the 19th Amendment, a production written and directed by Susan Demers. Demers is currently the Dean of Public Policy & Legal Studies for St. Petersburg College (SPC) and an avid supporter of the theater arts.

The production will be historical in nature. The right to vote is something most Americans take for granted, but for the first 131 years of our country’s existence, women did not have that right.

Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony might not be household names today, but for decades they were both admired and reviled as they worked to make the possibility of suffrage—voting—a reality. Join West Coast Players, Inc. for this real-life drama, produced in celebration of the 100-year anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment.

Performances will be live-streamed July 17–26 on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. and Sundays at 2:00 p.m.

Purchase tickets online for only $15.
