With the text taken entirely from the journals of real life leaders in the women's suffrage movement, Out of Our Fathers' House offers a compelling look at the fight for gender equality. Among the women featured include Elizabeth Cady Stanton, the original founder of the movement; famous labor organizer "Mother" Mary Jones; and Dr. Anna Shaw, a frontier minister famous for carrying a loaded pistol at all times. The play features Carol Kane and two-time Oscar-winner Dianne Wiest.
