Celebrating Women's History Month
“From Out The Fiery Furnace”
Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site | Birdsboro PA | Cost: Free
March is Women’s History Month and what better way to celebrate than to visit Hopewell Furnace National Historic Site. “From Out The Fiery Furnace” is a one act play written and directed by nationally recognized playwright Christine Emmert. Featuring the stories of life in the 19th century at Hopewell Furnace, the play is free in the park's Visitor Center. Set on the “Homefront” of the Civil War, the play demonstrates how a woman’s life and love could be singularly tracked through her relationship with a Hopewell stove. Several characters of the period are brought to life including runaway slaves, “fallen” women, indentured servants, orphaned children, and others. The play also sheds light on the practices of the furnace including providing equal pay for equal work regardless of race or gender. Women worked side by side with men as finishers, colliers, woodcutters as well as many other occupations. 610-582-8773 or visit our website for details.
