A Staged Reading of “The First Woman President”


  • In this political season here is a timely event. St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church and The Burwell School are co-hosting a staged reading of “The First Woman President” a play by local playwright Keith Burridge on Fri, June 17 at 7:30pm. In this one woman show, actress Danielle Fenton performs as Edith Wilson, the widow of President Woodrow Wilson. As she prepares for the inauguration of John F. Kennedy in 1961, Edith recalls her whirlwind romance with Woodrow Wilson 40 years earlier. During his Presidency, he suffers a debilitating stroke, which Edith conceals not only from the people and Congress, but also from his cabinet. For a time, she takes over running the Government, acting as “the first woman President.” Reservations and tickets ($10) are available from St. Matthew’s during office hours (919) 732-9308 and also at the door.
