This is an excerpt from the opening scene of the play “That Woman & Big Noise: The Fight for Women’s Suffrage in Washington State.” You’ll first hear the voice of Emma Smith DeVoe, a Tacoma suffragist, played here by Penny Lucas. And then Spokane suffragist May Arkwright Hutton, played by Claire Rudolf Murphy, chimes in.
