About All The Way Play
The selection of All the Way in this season was inspired by the 2020 Centennial of Women’s Suffrage. From June of 1919 to August of 1920, these United States passed and ratified the 19th Amendment to the Constitution, granting women the right to vote. However, the passage of the 19th Amendment, while worthy of celebration, did not in fact guarantee voting rights for all. The struggle for complete equality continued into the 1960’s and beyond. All the Way continues the story from inside the Oval Office with LBJ’s fight to enact the Civil Rights Act of 1964 working closely with Martin Luther King and other activists and politicians of the era.
The set includes a stunning replica of the Resolute desk used by several presidents of the United States in the White House Oval Office It was a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880 and was built from the English oak timbers of the British Arctic exploration ship HMS Resolute. The desk is still in use today.
