Many terrible tales have been told about Victoria C. Woodhull, the first woman to run for President of the United States in 1872. A well-meaning Los Angeles actress (Ashley Ford), in a misguided attempt at method acting, will summon the spirit of Victoria to tell her tale from beyond the grave, in the light of today's #metoo movement and set the record straight.
The play follows her rise from poverty to riches as a traveling clairvoyant who became the first female stockbroker on Wall Street, the first woman to formally address Congress, running her own progressive NY newspaper, her ultimate betrayal and demise.
Presented by United Solo, the world's largest solo theater festival in the world, currently in its ninth season.
