our 22nd season
"Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex." –The Equal Rights Amendment
- The ERA was first proposed in 1923–without success.
- It took almost 50 years before Congress finally voted to approve the amendment, but it fell just 3 states short of ratification.
- It's been re-proposed in every session of Congress since 1982, and yet the Equal Rights Amendment is still not part of the U.S. Constitution.
Now Congressman Roy Armstrong has a plan to pass the ERA once and for all. But he has a problem–and she’s about to go public! Will he go down in history as the "feminist" who won equal rights for women in America? Or as a scoundrel who couldn’t keep his privates in his pants?
A new play from local playwright William Bivins (winner of the 2009 Bay Area Critics Circle award for best original script, Pulp Scripture) whose work "bristles with an offbeat irreverent inventiveness" (Robert Hurwitt, SF Chronicle).
