Brother and sister, Wellington and Jeannette Rankin, move through life as a team, although each has quite different motivations and political views.
Suitable for all ages.
"I think it is hard to biographies on stage. This has a good start but to get into the second scene with out any conflict between characters can be difficult to watch. Just having exposition isn't interesting to watch. This has a lot of potential and could be very interesting but I would be careful about writing too much exposition about what happened rather than showing us the story."
"Great historical idea! I really like that these two Rankin plays are written like a series, but one written as dialog with the second one presented in sort of a docudrama format (In the beginning at least). These two were such amazing historical and political figures in Montana and the United States and yet little is brought to the public about them and their achievements. Great subject!"
"This sounds like a piece with a social justice theme. So far, so good."
"I'm interested, though I think you need to be careful of too much "explanation." Filter in the important historical information as you go instead of working so hard to bring it to our attention right away. This is however, an intiguing idea. I know some about Jeannete, but little about her brother and you have a great premise for a play. I would encourage you to make the story more about him than her and give us something fresh. Keep going!"
