Jane (Marissa Noel Swanson) is working on a biography of Julie (Erin Philpott), but Julie keeps on interfering, offering unsolicited opinions, even though she’s dead. But a little thing like death won’t stop her.
Julia Lathrop and Jane Addams first met as schoolgirls (“troublemakers” decrees one irate teacher) at Rockford Female Seminary (now Rockford University) and marched forth to shake the world. Over their sixty-year friendship, they bickered, rejoiced, commiserated and supported one another.
This world premiere play chronicles their lives and friendship.
