Director’s Note

By Susan Felder

Blue Stockings is a true story of female Cambridge students and the battle for equality in education, definition of women’s roles, voter suppression and fear of change (echoes to current world events). Two opposing philosophies meet head-on in a fight for future generations. The play sees scenes and events overlap and juxtapose, as warring philosophies turn from academic debate to explosive reality. It is also a coming of age story for those struggling to have their voices heard; for those who begin to recognize their own privileged status and for all who come to the realization that when one voice is silenced, the song of the entire world is diminished.   

Women who pursued education at the end of the 19th century were referred to as “blue stockings” because you wore your black stockings for serious endeavors. Generations of students at Cambridge University have prided themselves on philosophy, free thinking and being the movers and shakers of tomorrow. Yet when faced with real change (women receiving a degree) the alumni and students met free-thinking and social change with fear.  While in the classroom, ideas were challenged and free-thinking encouraged. In reality, free thinking and challenge of ideas was met with resistance and eventual violence. How can it be that even in a place celebrating the expansion of the human mind, expansion of thought may be seen as dangerous?
