About the Play:

The Remarkable Susan is a one-act drama by Tim Kelly. Drawn from the actual court records, this imaginative and compelling courtroom drama deals with the trial of Susan B. Anthony, an early champion of women's liberation who dared to fight for her constitutional right to vote in an election.

The Remarkable Susan is set in an upstate New York courtroom where Susan B. Anthony, a social reformer and women's rights advocate, is on trial for casting a ballot during the 1872 election for members of Congress. Tempers flare, animosities run high, and insults are traded as the fiery defendant of woman's rights challenges the ruling of the court – determined to resist bigotry and injustice. While her trial is basically a sham, she storms and pleads and lectures, and skillfully turns defeat into victory – sounding a call for human dignity which inevitably awakened the conscience of the nation.

The Remarkable Susan is an ideal choice for high school drama productions.

Cast: 10 female, 6 male (or all female), extras
