'An Appeal To The Woman Of The House' At Wells

 

wells appeal120Aurora, New York—The Wells College Theatre & Dance Department is proud to present the Spring Faculty production, "An Appeal to the Woman of the House," written by Christie Perfetti Williams and directed by Associate Professor of Theatre Siouxsie Easter. 'An Appeal to the Woman of the House' is a new play about the Freedom Riders during the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. It will be performed in Barler Auditorium on the Wells College campus on Friday, February 12, and Saturday, February 13, 2016. The house will open at 7:00 p.m. and the show will begin at 7:30 p.m.

'An Appeal to the Woman of the House' takes place on one fateful night in 1961 in the farmhouse of Rose and Gideon Walker on the Alabama-Tennessee border. It is just after midnight when David and his fellow lost Freedom Riders knock on the door seeking assistance in the form of a phone and a place to stay until daylight. But Gideon, who knows this is Klan country, is reluctant to let in this band of mixed race college kids until Rose forces him to open the door with the acknowledgement that "they're just babies." What follows is a touching story of race, love, acceptance and learning how to stand up for what you believe.
