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 and Erin Kelley. Live music by Syrhea Conaway.

$35 general admission, $30 seniors 65 and over, $25 full-time students w/ valid id.
