When We Were Young and Unafraid

Performance Dates

Washington D.C. Premiere. In the early 1970s, before Roe v. Wade or the Violence Against Women Act, Agnes has turned her quiet bed and breakfast into one of the few spots where victims of domestic violence can seek refuge. But to Agnes’s dismay, her latest runaway, Mary Anne, is beginning to influence Agnes’s college-bound daughter Penny. As the drums of a feminist revolution grow louder, Agnes is forced to confront her own presumptions about the women she’s spent her life trying to help.

“A stark reminder of how rare it is to see such urgent subject matter tackled in mainstream theater.” —NBC NY.
