  §  Synopsis  “At a Women’s Rights Conference, Susan B. Anthony recounts her life and achievements, remembering incidents and recalling contributions of women who supported her.

  §  Comment “In this  informal biographical dramatization, the actress uses a wooden lectern on a podium and a side table with a water pitcher and glass, all circa 1885. The play requires a minimal set, very few props and no costume changes. Only a simple lighting plan is necessary, always with emphasis on the performer.  •  ‘An Independent Spirit’ premiered during Women’s History Month 1999, at the Sarah Doyle Women’s Center, Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island, U.S.A.”

  §  Themes 1885, American history (1820-1906), biography, Anthony (Susan B[rownell]  Anthony, U.S. reformer and suffragist, 1820-1906), presentational theatre, women’s history, women’s suffrage.
