Clare Booth Luce's The Women is a wickedly venomous comedy about 1930s Manhattan socialites who, for pure sport, urge each other into self-destruction. Having no other occupation or purpose, the women manipulate each other to create gossip-column fodder for their own entertainment. The Women contains razor-sharp dialogue and social commentary particular to its time, but its themes -- marriage and divorce, socio-economic class, female friendship, standards of beauty and the role of women in society -- remain relevant today.

first time for this play and first time at this theater. I really enjoyed the play immensely...time just flew by because I got so enthralled in the story line.
The theater is wonderful too. You can sense that this community is very closet knit, passionate and eager to share their love with the audience.
It was a lovely play, lovely time, lovely actors and an all together lovely evening.

Sort of like One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest but much lighter. First act was a bit slow; needed to establish the characters and story. Second act was terrific. Play is comic, dramatic and a little thought provoking too. A must see. WCT rocks!
