Swallow-a-Bicycle Theatre presents:
100 Years in the (Un)Making
part of the Provocation Series at Sage Theatre’s 2019 IGNITE! Festival of Emerging Artists
Around 100 years ago, Nellie McClung joined other Manitoban Women in a Mock Parliament asking the question “should men vote?” Most Albertans and other Canadians know Nellie McClung from after she moved to Alberta and became one of the “famous 5”, the women who challenged the idea that women were not considered persons under the law.
Having experienced a different side of this legacy, a young Manitoban questions the common narrative and wonders why the rights of so many marginalized women are still sacrificed in order to promote it. After moving to Alberta in hopes of being able to further pursue advocacy work, they find themselves being held back by supposed allies and a legacy nearly a hundred years in the making.
