Two of my neighbors and I went to a play this last weekend; The Women, written by Clare Boothe Luce, whom you may know as a former ambassador to Italy, the first woman appointed to represent the USA in a major country.
The play was written in the 1930's and the original movie, starring Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford and Rosalind Russell came out in 1939. There was a remake in 2008, starring Meg Ryan and Annette Bening, along with Eva Mendes.
The play is funny, and shows the author to be erudite and observant. I think the content is timeless and this play could be adapted for performance in nearly any time period. The three of us certainly enjoyed it!
However, there was one aspect we didn't enjoy - and that was the cold temperature of the theater. We had been warned by a previous attendee that it was chilly, and so we dressed accordingly - or so we thought. I had on a sweater set and a skirt, and my legs and feet were shivering.
The play was held at The Cary Arts Center, which was the original Cary High School, and as it is on the historic register, it is an interesting place to visit. I just wish it had been warmer.
