About The Terrible Legend of Victoria Woodhull

Victoria Woodhull was the first woman to run for President of the United States of America in 1872, 40 years before women had the right to vote. The daughter of a petty criminal, with no formal education, it is said she spent her childhood as a traveling clairvoyant, but rose to become Wall Street’s first female stockbroker, the first women to address a congressional committee and a vocal apostle of free love and women’s sexual liberation.

However, the bold and salacious Ms. Woodhull would soon alienate her suffragette sisters who in turn snubbed her and Woodhull’s significant role in the women’s right movement was largely stricken from public record.

Clairvoyant. Stockbroker. Politician. Harlot. There have been many terrible legends surrounding the mysterious Victoria Woodhull. Her spirit joins us from beyond the grave, in the light of Hollywood’s recent #MeToo movement, to tell her tale and finally, set the record straight in this World Premiere by The Owl and The Pussycat Theatre Company.
