Talking with Our Grandmothers

Thursday, October 16, 7:30 pm

“My grandmother traveled to The Hague to stop World War One. Her name was Lola Maverick Lloyd – from Texas – and she kept a diary of her experiences, which are on file at the New York Public Library.”

On the 100th anniversary of WW1, two activists bring to life the efforts of women to end conflict. In this performance piece, Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom members Robin Lloyd and Charlotte Dennett employ dialogue, letters and images (and a bust of Robin’s grandmother Lola Maverick Lloyd) to evoke a conversation across generations. Following this exchange between grandmothers and granddaughters, we hope for a discussion with the audience of how war has affected their families, and the importance of women (and people) to understand power in order to be effective in stopping war.
