The Suffrage Trilogy – An Update

IMG_6812

Thanks to everyone who came out as ‘extras’ for the filming of the suffrage stars of ‘A Soapbox for Democracy’ on Sunday (25/3)! We had a wonderful turnout of interested people at the Hetzel Room in the Institute Building on North Terrace. Members and non-members alike were present while living decendents of Elizabeth Webb Nicholls came along to watch the performance as well. In costume we heard from Catherine Helen Spence (Maggie Wood), Mary Lee (Tamara Lee), and Elizabeth Webb Nicholls (Joanne Hartstone).

Thanks to Peter for photography and Chris for filming the event. We are hoping the footage will be used in the future for entertainment and educational purposes to impress upon school-age children and adults alike the importance of the vote – stay tuned!
