Event Navigation

THIS PROGRAM IS RESCHEDULED TO WEDNESDAY, APRIL 4 AT 11AM.

 

Historic interpreter Maureen O’Connor Leach gives a dramatic presentation as Maizie Stanton, a 1925 matron planning to open a Tea Room. Through this character monologue, during which Maizie shares her husband’s reaction to her announcement and how she is preparing for the undertaking, the audience will view the challenges faced by women of the era who were stepping out of the home and into the business world. Following the performance, Leach will participate in a discussion with the audience about the Tea Room craze and the evolution of women as entrepreneurs.
