The Agitators | Tuesday, March 10 - Sunday, March 22
"Do you believe this can ever be a country for all?" Susan B. Anthony, a white suffragist, asks Frederick Douglass, a black statesman, on the day they first meet. It's the question at the heart of The Agitators, a riveting new play about two rebels who became American icons. Youthful hopes and dreams united them in their fight to end slavery, but over time, their disagreements about how to gain voting rights tested their alliance. Theirs is a story of defiance, rebellion, and revolution. In 2020 we invite you to meet the people who wrote the playbook on how to fight for someone else's rights.

Wharton Esherick Museum Tour (Greenways Get Together) | Friday, March 13
Join Schuylkill River Greenways for a private and free tour of the Wharton Esherick Museum, home, and studio of famed American artist Wharton Esherick located atop Valley Forge Mountain in Chester County.
The museum campus is set on 12 wooded acres and comprised of multiple buildings including Wharton Esherick's Studio, now the centerpiece of the museum. Esherick's highly individual, hand-built Studio was constructed over a 40-year period beginning in 1926, incorporating Arts and Crafts, Expressionist, and organic designs. Two years later Esherick began his 1928 Expressionist garage, now the visitor center. In 1973, just one year after its official opening as a museum, the Studio was added to the National Register of Historic Places. In 1993, the Museum was designated as a National Historic Landmark for Architecture.
