Good Food Crusaders Benefit Night at Dartmouth Players
“Join us for a Benefit Night dedicated to our Blue Nose team, the Good Food Crusaders. Come see a preview of The Fighting Days, by Dartmouth playwright Wendy Lill and support our team at the same time! Tickets are $15.
About the play: The women’s suffrage movement of the early 1900s was a testament to the sacrifice of women to get the right to vote. A newspaper editor Francis Marion Beynon becomes friends with famed suffragette Nellie McClung. While the two women fight together to get women the vote (which they accomplished in Manitoba in 1916), the First World War splits them on the issues of conscription – and whether immigrant women should be allowed to vote as well as British and Canadian-born “Empire women”. “
