THE AGITATORS BY MAT SMART

September 27 – October 13 at The Kranzberg Tickets can be purchased through metrotix.com Group rates available through email

“Organize, agitate, educate, must be our war cry.”

Susan B. Anthony


“Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation, are people who want crops without plowing the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning.”

Frederick Douglass


Upstream Theater is excited to present Mat Smart’s compelling play The Agitators, which takes us straight into the thunder and lightning of the 45-year friendship between Frederick Douglass and Susan B. Anthony. After meeting in Rochester in the 1840’s, these two social activists became great allies and, at times, great adversaries. They agitated the nation, they agitated (and sometimes aggravated) each other and, in so doing they helped change the Constitution and the course of American history.


Directed by Lisa Tejero
With J. Samuel Davis & Erin Kelley
Live music by Syrhea Conaway
