This moving play is drawn from the diaries, journals and letters of six different women. They are seen as they grow up, marry, bear children and face being ostracized. Out of Our Fathers' House is taken entirely from the diaries, journals and letters of the 18th, 19th and 20th century women portrayed in it. Told through monologues created from the actual writings of the women, this play is designed as a hypothetical conversation between these ladies who lived at various times over a period of almost two hundred years. In spite of the differences in their eras, these women are united through the common challenges of their efforts to grow "out of their father's house." The cast: Eliza Southgate (1783 –1809)-Schoolgirl; Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902)-Founder of the Women's Suffrage Movement; Maria Mitchell (1818-1889)-Astronomer; "Mother" Mary Jones (1830-1930)-Labor Organizer; Dr. Anna Howard Shaw (1847-1919)-Minister and Doctor; Elizabeth Gertrude Stern (1890-1954)-In the Jewish Ghetto.
