The Women

by Clare Boothe Luce

ON OUR STAGE IN OUR 79TH SEASON

January 12-13, 19-21, 26-28, 2007
Produced by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc.

THE SHOW

Mary, who prefers to be know as Mrs. Stephen Hanes, thinks she has it all. That is, until her friends “accidentally” reveal that her husband has a mistress. Distraught by the news, Mary relies upon her socialite friends to help her through the crisis: the cynical Nancy, the naive Peggy, and the wearily sophisticated Sylvia and Edith. By following their well-intentioned but misguided advice, Mary falls from the pinnacle of 1930’s Manhattan society to the depths of personal despair. Only at her lowest does she realize who she truly is and what she truly wants – to be Mrs. Stephen Hanes again! With farcical pacing and amazing one-line zingers, The Women is a riotous comedy of manners.
