Kitty Greene is the wife of American Revolution General
Greene and future co-inventor of the Cotton Gin. She is part of a
fictional meeting of Revolutionary women from the play "A Hysterical History of
the American Revolution."
Thank you for inviting me to be
part of this momentous meeting of the women of the American Revolution. Oh,
this is so exciting. I move that we do some open act of protest.
But nothing as messy as that awful tea party in Boston. Imagine dumping
all that lovely tea in the harbor.
Pauses to think.
Maybe we could
burn our petticoats?
Doesn't see a good reaction from the other women.
No. That is
way too 1760's.
How about a
symbol? We could rally behind a woman that symbolizes what we stand for!
Ladies! I will present to you two symbols of the Women of the American
some props. She puts on a bonnet and holds up a water pitcher.
First we have
Molly Pitcher. She is the brave woman who ran pitchers of water to the
canons to cool them during battle. When her husband fell under enemy
fire, she took his post and fired the canon!
Kitty then rips off her bonnet and pulls out her hair so she has crazy hair and picks up a hatchet. She gets a crazy look in her eyes and swings the ax yelling a battle cry.
And we have
Molly Hatchet... Yee-haw! I'm gonna git me a lobsterback!
Kitty realizes she has scared everyone and hides the ax
behind her skirt.
Sorry to scare you, Mrs. Washington. I'll put away the ax now.
