Jess is in the middle of a writing assignment on one of her heroes and it’s not going well. Frustrated, she rips the pages out of a book that include three important, but relatively unknown women, who became historical trailblazers. This act summons the women into the present as their 10 year old selves.

The three female trailblazers are Thanalthur (a peacemaker from the 1700’s), Helen Harrison (one of the first Canadian female pilots from the 1920’s) and Rose Fortune (the first North American female police officer from the 1780’s.)

“I’d love audiences to think about what makes a hero. Is it an accomplishment? A sacrifice? Generosity? All three? I’d love them to go home thinking about the possibility that they too, like the four young women in the play, have the potential to be heroic and do heroic things.” — Ann Hodges, Director
