Lady Constance Lytton

Deeds Not Words

Our award-winning, original work told the story of Lady Constance Lytton, an English aristocrat who disguised herself as a seamstress in her efforts to help the suffragette cause. 

The play began as a research trip by Mr. St John to Manchester and London in the UK, as well as Seneca Falls, New York, as he examined the places and people important in the struggle for women's suffrage. Inspired by books, letters, photographs, and newspaper articles, the students created this piece in honor of the sacrifices made in the march toward equal rights.

Deeds Not Words was named Best in Show at the 2017 Trumbauer Festival, Alabama's statewide secondary theatre contest. Senior Rachel Ponder was named Best Actress in a One Act.
