By: Mat Smart

Directed by: Logan Vaughn  

Location: Geva Theatre

Democrat & Chronicle

"The groundbreaking play by Mat Smart is a biographical account of the four-decade-long friendship between Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony, on stage through Nov. 12. The production is a brilliant success in illuminating the rights of American citizenship — a powerful history lesson that needs to have a voice. In short, it is not to be missed.

The Agitators faithfully demonstrates the demarcation line of wills that brought these two forces of nature together, when race and gender issues, equality and voting rights, were being forged in the wake of slavery and the Civil War."
