A professor at Hobart and William Smith Colleges (HWS) wrote a play based on the gatherings of suffragists that used to be held at Fossenvue on the shores of Seneca Lake in Geneva.
Fossenvue is the former summer retreat that hosted Geneva suffragists Elizabeth Smith Miller, Anne Fitzhugh Miller and their companions for decades up until 1920, according to Finger Lakes Times.
Now, Chris Woodworth, associate professor of theater at HWS, has written a play called “Fossenvue” based on the Millers’ experience. A staged reading of the play is planned for April 30 at 4 p.m. in the Wesleyan Chapel at 130 Fall St. in Seneca Falls.
The play, narrated by Woodworth, lasts 95 minutes with intermission. The event is sponsored by the Women’s Rights National Historical Park as well as the Friends of the Women’s Rights National Historical Park.
