Victoria and Frederick for President
Written by Jonathan L. Davidson

Vic and Fred

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.
