Grafton – The Grafton Historical Society will present History at Play’s critically acclaimed one-woman performance celebrating the centennial of women’s suffrage in the United States Sunday, March 29 at 2 p.m. at Apple Tree Arts, 1 Grafton Common.

The fiery performance “I Now Pronounce You Lucy Stone” has received accolades from journalists, actors, and historians alike and was featured on the WGBH Forum, a series of lectures and performances selected by WGBH to be streamed online. Now, in honor of the 2020 centennial celebration for Women’s Suffrage, Lucy Stone travels to Grafton to tell her incredible story. 

History at Play Founder and Artistic Director Judith Kalaora is Lucy Stone, the first woman from Massachusetts to earn a college degree, a fierce abolitionist, and women’s rights activist. 

This free 60-minute presentation is suitable for all ages and will be followed by a Q&A session.
