Age of Arousal

By Linda Griffiths

September 27th at 7:00 pm (virtual) 

The entire original Austin Playhouse cast from our 2009 production will reunite for a one-night-only live reading. 

Fusing the political battle of the 19th-century suffragists with more personal struggles of sexual and gender identity, Age of Arousal creates a wholly unique world to explore love, desire, and the cost and promise of equality. *Age of Arousal contains mature themes and frank sexual discussions that would make Jane Austen blush.

A portion of ticket sales will benefit the League of Women Voters.
