By Norma Cole and Naneki Elliott.
Cast: 2w. (3, may be expaned to 5 w.) Set in a rural Kentucky home near the end of the 19th century, this poignant drama recalls the era after the Civil War when women in Kentucky took action against the injustice of English common law regarding property rights, wages and possessions. The central characters: Aunt Jane, a forward-thinking mountain sage; and Sally Ann Flint, an activist for women's rights, strike at the power structure of the community with explosive results. Dynamic and entertaining, this work is based on the fictional stories of Eliza Calvert Hall first published in 1907 under the title "Aunt Jane of Kentucky." "I cordially recommend the first chapter of "Aunt Jane of Kentucky" as a tract in all families where the menfolk tend to selfish or thoughtless or overbearing disregard to the rights of their womenfolk." (Theodore Roosevelt) Approximate running time: 50 minutes.
