The Agitators

By Mat Smart | Directed by KenYatta Rogers
Featuring Ro Boddie (as Frederick Douglass) and Marni Penning (as Susan B. Anthony)
This brilliant play examines the 45-year friendship and occasional rivalry between two great, rebellious, and flawed American icons: Susan B. Anthony and Frederick Douglass. Young abolitionists when they met in Rochester in the 1840s, they were full of hopes, dreams and a common purpose. As they grew to become the cultural icons we know today, their movements collided and their friendship was severely tested. This is the story of that 45-year friendship – from its beginning in Rochester, through a Civil War and to the highest halls of government. They agitated the nation, they agitated each other and, in doing so, they helped shape the Constitution and the course of American history.A loving and faithful portrait of two historical figures, Mat Smart’s story also brims with modern urgency and relevance.

“A brilliant success in illuminating the rights of American citizenship—not to be missed. The Agitators faithfully demonstrates the demarcation line of wills that brought these two forces of nature together, when race and gender issues, equality and voting rights, were being forged in the wake of slavery and the Civil War.”

— Rochester Democrat & Chronicle
