Celebrate Women’s History Month with us on Friday night!

 

Christine Emmert

Celebrate Women’s History Month by attending a one-act play written by Christine Emmert and starring  Barbara Hannevig. The play will be performed Friday, March 12, at 7:30 pm in the Winsor Room, admission is free, and no registration is required. Refreshments will be served.

In the 19th century, Hopewell stoves used for cooking and heating became famous on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The furnace company and its employees prospered as a result of this commercial success. The stove, however, also affected the social history of the United States by giving women free time to read, write,  and think about their place in society.The popularity of cooking stoves (replacing hearth cooking) parallels the rise of the Women’s Movement.

Barbara Hannevig is a 40-year veteran of stage and screen and Christine Emmert is the author of numerous plays and at least one book (Radnor owns a copy). This original drama was first presented by The National Park Service in September, 2009.
