"Members Only - Out and About"
"Mrs. Packard” tells the true story of Elizabeth Parsons Ware Packard from Ware, Massachusetts who after being confined by her husband to an insane asylum because she disagreed with him publicly became a pioneering feminist by fighting for her freedom.
After defending her sanity at trial and being acquitted after 7 minutes of deliberation in 1864, Packard campaigned to ensure the rights of the mentally ill as well as those of married women. She publicized the story of her hospitalization at the hands of her husband in order to prevent the abuse and neglect of others vulnerable before the law.
“Mrs. Packard” is performed at The Albany Barn (56 2nd St. in Albany). Tickets are $15 and available on Eventbrite.
Tickets MUST be purchased at this Eventbrite link prior to the date of the performance.
Please register on our website to attend and indicate if you'd like to carpool from the Club. If interested in carpooling, please meet at the Club no later than 7 p.m.
