Susan Glaspell’s
Chains of Dew

In the Lansburgh Theatre


Guess who’s coming to dinner? It’s the Birth Control League! In Susan Glaspell’s Chains of Dew, New York feminist Nora Powers follows her friend (and possibly more), the freethinking poet Seymore Standish, to his Midwestern hometown. But when she meets his wife and mother, Nora discovers that she is forced to confront her own prejudices. Beloved D.C. actress and director Holly Twyford helms the first ReDiscovery Reading of the 2014-2015 Season, by one of the founding figures of modern American drama.
