PREMIERE SHOWCASE: Voices! A History of the VIA of Doylestown
Phillips’ Mill is proud to present “Voices: A History of the VIA of Doylestown” in partnership with the Village Improvement Association (VIA). This historical drama, written by Joy Nash, is a celebration of Doylestown Hospital and the women of the VIA who founded it 100 years ago.
Doylestown Hospital is the only hospital in the United States founded and still governed by a nonsecular women’s organization.
The play is set in 1895, when a social phenomenon is sweeping the country. American women of all ages, classes and races are organizing. Not for social purposes, but for social causes: women’s suffrage, child welfare, the needs of working women, racial equality and the health of their communities. Daughters. Mothers. Widows. Women. This is their history. These are their Voices.
Our Premiere Showcase is a selected, fully staged mounting of an original, full-length play performed for the first time in front of a live audience.
