Abstract

This reading of the play, which was originally written for The Remnant Trust at IPFW in 2009, featured several veterans in the cast. This reader's theatre production is a conversation, in their own words, among political leaders, average citizens, men and women in uniform of all ranks, and those who have written about women in the military, from scholarly researchers to opinion page writers. It begins and ends with words about Deborah Sampson Gannet, whose biography, The Female Review/Memoirs of an American Young Lady inspired the work.
