Middlebury Actors Workshop
March 3, 4 and 5
Middlebury Actors Workshop presents American Radical starring Kate Redway.
American Radical is an intimate, astonishing and moving portrayal of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the founder of the woman’s rights movement at Seneca Falls in 1848. American Radical uses Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s own writings to reveal her humor, inner life and public battles.
From Kate Redway, playwright and performer, “I was literally overwhelmed by the story of Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s life as a mother of six and her extraordinary ability as a writer and her glorious sense of humor. I could not believe that I had never known of her contribution to women’s rights, rights I have as a woman today. So I began to create a play based on her writings. That play is American Radical.”
Kate Redway appeared off-Broadway in the world premieres of NOTHING BUT BUKOWSKI at the Samuel Becket Theater, WEST MEMPHIS MOJO at Theater Four and MISSING PIECES at the Ensemble Studio Theater. Kate Redway has also been seen in THEATERSPORTS at the West Side Arts Theater. She is a founding member of the sketch comedy group RUBBER FEET which has performed regularly at the Comic Strip in New York City. She is a stand-up comedian and appears regularly at the Gotham Comedy Club in New York City. She is also a professor of theater at William Paterson University.
American Radical was written by Kate Redway and Stephen Rosenfield. Directed by Jane Mandel.
“The story of a great American who advanced the role of women is masterfully brought to life by the pen and stage craft of Kate Redway. A must see.” WFDU 89.1 FM
