BLUE STOCKINGS by Jessica Swale

Directed by Spenser Davis

Promethean’s Season 14 will kick off with the Chicago premiere of Blue Stockings, a moving, comical, and eye-opening story of four young women fighting for education and self-determination against the larger backdrop of women’s suffrage. Cambridge 1896, and Girton College, home to the country’s first female students, is an object of annoyance and derision to the rest of the university. The year’s intake of new women face economic difficulty, the distractions of men and radical politics, and the jaw-dropping prejudice that blights every aspect of academic life. Meanwhile, there looms the prospect of a controversial vote to decide if these ‘blue stockings’ should be allowed to graduate. Written by Jessica Swale. Performances of Blue Stockings will take place at The Den Theatre, 1331 N. Milwaukee Ave.
