The Woodhull Project brings Victoria Woodhull (1838-1927) back to life to see what she would say about politics and women’s rights in 2020. The clairvoyant Victoria Woodhull returns to give one of her lectures. Known as a Free Lover, Victoria was the first woman to speak in Congress, the first woman to open a stock brokerage firm, the first woman to publish a newspaper, and the first woman to run for US President. Through dialogue with the audience and flashbacks of her extraordinary and scandalous life, we learn about this woman who was written out of history.
'Emma Palzere-Rae (who’s previously done one-woman shows about Harriet Beecher Stowe and Gilda Radner), is a crisp fact-filled impression of the crusading suffragist Victoria Woodhull, ... She’s present, alert and quick on her feet'
