A beautiful, funny and heartfelt play about a radical pioneer in Canada’s suffrage movement to celebrate 100 years since women got the vote. Flora MacDonald Denison, a true radical of her time, has secluded herself in Bon Echo where she devotes her time to nature and the ideals of Walt Whitman. But life in Bon Echo is turned on its head with the arrival of a mysterious young woman. What secrets will be revealed?
