Claire Booth Luce's "The Women"

AIR DATE: November 7, 2013

What if they wrote a play with only female leads? Claire Boothe Luce did ... in the early 1930s. The Women is a satire on the marriage competition in upper-class New York in the 1930s. When one woman finds out from her manicurist that her husband is having an affair with a sales clerk at Saks Fifth Avenue, mayhem breaks out. The play has some 40 characters, which means the actresses have to play numerous roles with quick costume changes. We talk with the director and a lead character ahead of the the performances this weekend and next.


Rhonda Carlson, director, The Women

Cynthia Dobek, plays "Nancy"
