1872: Spiritualists, free lovers, owners of the first woman-run stock brokerage in the US, newspaper publishers, and as notorious in their time as the Kardashians are today, Victoria Woodhull and her sister Tennessee Clafin were praised and condemned in equal measure. Victoria was also the first female candidate for President of the United States. After publishing a scandalous story, the sisters were arrested for obscenity and spent election day 1872 in jail.
VIC explores their tumultuous lives and times. These women overcame every obstacle and led brazen and courageous lives in an America full of greed, racism, crime, and corruption that we are still grappling with today.
This is their story. Told in the spectacular blend of theatre, movement, music, wit, and spectacle that is UMO.
