About It's My Party! On Demand
100 YEARS AGO, IN THE MIDDLE OF A PANDEMIC, WOMEN FOUGHT FOR AND WON THE RIGHT TO VOTE.
Do you know the true story?
Based on real historical figures, It's My Party! delves into the turbulent backstory of the fight to pass the 19th Amendment. Facing an uphill battle in Washington, young suffragists employed increasingly radical tactics to make their voices heard, leading to bitter rivalries and a generational split that threatened to tear the suffragists’ movement apart from the inside. Their battle did not win the right for all women to vote. That day came much later. Even today, we take to the streets to advocate for our causes. Join us and be Inspired!
It's My Party! was originally developed in conjunction with Pipeline Playwrights and the SW Regional Premiere was produced by Echo Theatre.
Echo Theatre champions the diverse voices of women+.*
Echo Theatre forges gender parity within the canon of global theater by producing, promoting, and preserving the work of women+.
Echo Theatre incorporated in the state of Texas in February, 1998 and received non-profit status that April. Inspiration for our company's name springs from the nymph "Echo" of Greek mythology; cursed to forever repeat the words of others, never speaking for herself. Because women playwrights are not heard on world stages as often as their male colleagues, Echo Theatre only produces plays written by women. The plays we present are as different as the women who write them, so you’ll enjoy a variety of entertainment. We're proud to specialize in women's work.
We offer mainstage productions, free staged readings of plays with talkbacks, the Echo Offstage podcast, and projects as they evolve.
* About women+: We recognize the limiting nature of the binary use of the word “woman.” We use the term “women-plus” to include an expansive and diverse array of people; including those born female, those who identify as women, and those who are gender non-conforming.
