Pen and Podium production parodies Anthony trial

Coastal Carolina University's third annual Pen and Podium production, "The Trial of Susan B. Anthony," will be presented March 11 and 12 at 10 a.m. in Wheelwright Auditorium in conjunction with the university's Women's History Month events. The production is free and open to the public.

Written by Lee Bollinger, assistant professor of English and journalism at Coastal, the play parodies of the trial of pioneer women's rights activist Susan B. Anthony, who was arrested after voting illegally in 1872. Visitors to the trial include Sojourner Truth, a former black slave activist who advocated women's rights and who was always welcomed at suffragette meetings and Frederick Douglass, who joins the group as a supporter for Anthony at the trial.

The cast, comprised of Coastal faculty, staff and students, includes Linda Hollandsworth, professor of English, as Anthony; Edgar Dyer, professor of politics and geography, as the prosecuting attorney; Glenn Hanson, director of financial aid, as Anthony's attorney; and Jack Flanders of information technology serves as the judge. Dramatic arts students Amie Barr of Hemingway and Jerrod Paige of Gresham play Truth and Douglass, respectively.

For more information, call the Wheelwright Box Office at 349-2502.
