Three Stars—Chicago Tribune "...shattering our expectations about both conventional drama and the trajectory of women's relationships..."

August 18 through October 8, 2016
Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm; Sundays at 6pm

On a spring New England day in 1935, Fefu invites seven women into her home. Traveling through Fefu’s home with her closest friends, we see intimate glimpses of their complicated relationships. Fefu believes she can shape the world around her. They plan to rehearse a play for a charity event. Can she create a community? Or will their individual versions of womanhood destroy each other?

Approximate running time: 2 hours (including intermission)
