Description

We are thrilled to present "Hindsight is," a three-episode podcast series in the radio play genre to be released weekly, starting on Monday, October 19.

The series will focus on vignette scenes with a range of local and regional historical figures in Connecticut, including women’s Suffragist Alice Paul and former NAACP Connecticut Chapter President William Webb.

Actors will portray these historical figures, dramatizing social and political issues intensified this year such as voting rights, racism, and fascism through their unique perspectives as citizens from the past.

In this first episode, "Alice Paul and Woodrow Wilson: Together Again in 2020" Paul and Wilson continue their debate about women's right to vote and whether the Equal Rights Amendment should have been passed with the clarity afforded by looking back from the year 2020. By allowing Wilson and Paul to see how the women's movement has evolved, we will imagine how their views and debates may (or may not) have changed with the times.

These episodes will be accompanied by two public programs, see below.

In addition to the episodes, further digital materials including transcripts, research images, and a teaching guide with accompanying workshop will be made available to educators and parents to use as resources for student learning.

"Hindsight is" is a podcast series is produced by Piti Theatre Company. Their mission is to create original performances and community-building events that accelerate local transformation towards joy, sustainability and justice.

Piti Theatre Company will also work with Aldrich Teen Fellows and collaborate with Aldrich educators on developing digital resources for youth and family engagement with topics presented in the podcast series.
This series is presented in conjunction with the exhibition Twenty Twenty.
