Saturday was International Women’s Day and, as a fitting follow-up, St. Francis College will present Gettysburg: One Woman’s War, a one woman play starring Michéle LaRue (photo from her performance in Someone Must Wash the Dishes) as a woman resident of Gettysburg during and after the great Civil War battle. According to the Eagle:
The play is a dramatization of three short stories written by Elsie Singmaster in her classic book, Gettysburg: Stories of the Red Harvest and the Aftermath. The stories deal with the start of the battle, the Gettysburg Address and a look 50 years later as sightseers return to the battlefield.
The performance will begin at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 12, at the St. Francis College Founders Hall, 182 Remsen Street. It’s free and open to the public.
