In Coya's House

The career of Coya Knutson, first Midwestern woman elected to Congress in 1954, was cut short by jealous politicians who persuaded her husband to write a letter saying "Coya, come home."

Produced by The Great American History Theatre, St. Paul. Can be performed by a cast of seven: four men, two women, one eleven-year-old boy.


"In Coya's House is the kind of play that perfectly fulfills the Great American History Theatre's mission: It entertains, it illuminates, it educates and it makes you want to run to the library to learn more."
Dominic Papatola, St. Paul Pioneer Press
