Split Show: Marriage Equality at Broom Street Theater and The History of a Political Activist

Monday, 24 September 2012 | A Public Affair

On Monday September 24th, host John Quinlan provided listeners with a split program showcasing an original play by Callen Harty about same sex marriage, followed by an update from homegrown WI Capitol Uprising activist Jenna Pope about her recent experiences with the Occupy Movement nationwide. Callen Harty’s play, One Man/One Woman, looks at the topic of marriage and marriage equality through a series of vignettes from Adam and Eve (and Steve) in the Garden of Eden to modern couples struggling with the meaning of marriage to politicians working hard to prevent people from marrying clocks. It is a fun overview of marriage equality and what it means in our modern world. The play will run at Broom Street Theater–which is actually located at 1119 Williamson Street–on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 8pm through October 6th. To read more about One Man/One Woman, visit the Broom Street Theater website. As the Uprising at the WI Capitol took hold 18 months ago, Jenna Pope was a 21-year-old UW student and political novice. Like many of her generation, however, she was quickly inspired to action, including civil disobedience in protesting measures that have limited citizen access to the Capitol. As both an activist and photographer, in the months since then, she not only took a prominent role in local recall efforts, but has also traveled across the country to assist the Occupy Wall Street movement. This is her first visit back to Madison after recently moving to New York, where she participated in last weekend’s first anniversary celebration of Occupy Wall Street.
