Wise and Wilful Women- Lougheed House Calgary

  • Lougheed House 707 13 Ave SW Calgary, AB, T2R 0K8 Canada (map)

Look over there! One such person is sitting in her parlour, in Lougheed Houuse in Calgary: Lady Isabella Lougheed. She is waiting for Mrs. Mary Scott Widner and Mrs. Nellie McClung who are coming for tea. 

Storytellers Karen Gummo, Mary Hays and Betty Hersberger created "Wise and Wilful Women" giving voice to these three historical characters as they recall their challenges and accomplishments.  Audiences can enjoy the  'Wise and Wilful Women'  performance (July 29) at Lougheed  House as part of Historic Calgary  week, which includes a stroll through the neighbourhood to the former homes of Mrs. Widner  and Mrs. McClung.
