about this production

somethingpersists Something Persists takes four women from turn of the century novels written by Theodore Dryser, Henry James, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, and Edith Wharton, and parallels their journeys through a patriarchal society. These great writers were among the first to examine the changing roles of men and women in western society.

Something Persists employs movement based, dialogue/movement based, and traditional dialogue scenes to explore the power of the modern woman's struggle.
