The Show

It’s 1910 and the future is now! Blanche Stuart Scott decides she must become one of the first women to drive across the entire country, and nothing — not outlaws, not girl scouts, not even Gertie, her cynical reporter companion for the journey — will prevent her from going down in the history books. But when the women pick up a mysterious third passenger, will they be able to get the Model 38 Overland across the finish line? A historical-ish comedy about the literal lengths women must go to be recognized in their time.

The Festival

SheNYC Arts is a femme-led nonprofit organization fighting for gender equity in the arts & entertainment industry across the United States. Each summer, they produce the SheLA Theater Festival in Los Angeles. This year, out of a pool of over 450 submissions, Blanche Stuart Scott was one of the five chosen plays to participate in the festival.

“The great big world was out there and there were things to be done that were a damn sight more important than who trumped Charlie’s ace or who fell into the punch bowl at the country club.”
