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.

Written by Philip Barry
Directed by Kirk Larson
This 1939 Broadway hit starred Katharine Hepburn, and the 1940 film version starred Hepburn, Cary Grant and Jimmy Stewart. A spoiled, divorced daughter of a privileged family is preparing to marry husband #2, but husband #1 is still very much in the picture. Add a handsome, charming reporter, and the young lady is really not sure whom to marry! Sophisticated and clever comedy at its very best!
