The Only Woman in the Room tells the story of the remarkable Frances Perkins, the first female to hold the position of Secretary of Labor and a Cabinet position. Beginning as a shy, quiet girl from Newcastle, Maine, Frances became a fighter and advocate for workers' rights when she saw first-hand the injustices and negligent working conditions in US factories. Her dedication to supporting the poor and middle classes, developing a social safety net, and ensuring safe working conditions changed the course of American history and still affects us today regardless of her being the Only Woman in the Room. Performances are July 15 at 7:30PM; July 16 at 2PM and 7:30PM; July 17 at 2PM with a talkback from Sarah Peskin from the Frances Perkins Center on Sunday, July 17. Recommended for ages 10+
