Victoria and Frederick for President
Written by Jonathan L. Davidson
Create Carolina 2008 presented the world premiere of
“Victoria and Frederick for President”: Before there was a
Hillary there was Victoria, and before there was an Obama
there was Douglass. A little know fact in American History
is that in 1872 Victoria Woodhull, the first female
stockbroker, ran for president and nominated Fredrick
Douglass, a former slave, as her vice presidential nominee.
Inspired by the political climate of 2007, Create Carolina
used our unique collaborative process to write a new
innovative theater piece about the untold story of Victoria
Woodhull and Frederick Douglass. Our writer in residence
collaborated with Winthrop University students to create
a piece that examined the parallels between the political
processes of then and now by using a format that
combined multimedia and theatre.
We are excited to announance that Victoria & Frederick for President
was selected for the 2009 NY International Fringe Festival. The performances included Winthrop University Alumni and was performed at The New School for Drama.
