“Tea With Alice & Me” is a one-woman performance by author and activist Zoe Nicholson that spotlights the life of Alice Paul, a leading suffragist who used civil disobedience tactics to help secure women’s right to vote in the United States.
Nicholson created the performance as a way to bring Paul’s ideas and life to a wide audience.
Wild West Women, the company that produced the show, explains:
Wild West Women is the proud producer of Tea with Alice and Me, a full length one woman performance that takes the audience to women’s tearooms ~ Seneca, Selfridges, The National Women’s Party, Women’s Bookstores. Of course it is really about a cup of revolution served up in nonviolent direct action. From 1775 through today, Zoe takes you on her militant, revolutionary, feminist call to action. Hundreds of pictures and personal stories transport you to each time and place she describes.
