Poster advertising a Visiting Artists event featuring Joyce Van Dyke, Judy Braha and Elaine Vaan Houge focued on their new theatre production "Representation And How To Get It". The image is a pile of vote buttons.

Playwright Joyce Van Dyke, director Judy Braha, and actor Elaine Vaan Hogue talk about their collaboration on a new one-woman play featuring suffragist and abolitionist Julia Ward Howe, who asks, “What does it do to your soul if you don’t have representation?” The play is a fever dream and a call to action by Howe, who was a playwright, poet, and founder of the American Woman Suffrage Association which supported voting rights for Black women as well as white women. The conversation will draw parallels between Howe’s mission and today’s election.
