The Actors’ Mission are finishing off their season on a high note with their debut of Clare Boothe Luce’s The Women, which opens tonight at 7:00 pm at the Elk’s Lodge on 307 C Street in Rock Springs.
The Women tells the story of Mary Haines, a kind hearted and well-to-do woman living in New York City. Mary seems to have the perfect life, including the perfect husband and the perfect children. But not everything is what it seems. Mary finds out, through machinations by her gossip-loving friend, Sylvia Fowler, that her husband has been cheating on her with Crystal Allen, the blonde bombshell working at the Saks Fifth Avenue perfume counter. What is Mary to do? Stay quiet and remain married, or listen to the advice of her friends, get divorced, and let Crystal take her place as the new Mrs. Haines? Let the drama and hilarity ensue!
“Filled with strong, colorful, comedic characters, a snappy supporting cast of many dozens, and an abundance of witty dialogue, Clare Boothe Luce’s The Women is juicy, wicked, and full of guilty fun. Both a scathing commentary on the life of the superficial, selfish socialite and a knowing, heart-felt depiction of romantic rivalry, toxic friendships, and the thousands of supporting roles women play in offices, salons, and their own lives.” – The StageAgent
