“A Brilliant Play … Theatre at its best!”
Frederick Douglas and Susan B. Anthony, they agitated the nation and each other and, by doing so, helped shape the course of American history.
The Agitators tells of the enduring but tempestuous friendship of Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. Great allies? Yes, and at times, great adversaries. The play follows the young abolitionists after they meet in Rochester in the 1840s, full of hopes and sharing a common purpose. As they grow into cultural icons, their quests for freedom and equality collide, which tests their friendship.
