The Women


November 12-14, 18-20, 1999


Community Players Theatre


The plot of “The Women” involves the efforts of a group of women to play their respective roles in an artificial society that consists of vain show, comedy, tragedy, hope and disappointment. This brilliant play has become a modern classic. Aside from the novelty of its involving a large cast of women (no male characters at all), it is an immensely entertaining panorama of our modern metropolitan world from the feminine viewpoint.

The next production showcased the ultimate cat fight with Clare Booth’s comedy-drama “The Women.” The show had an all-female cast of 28 actresses, and the show received praise for their performances. This was the directing debut for Penny Wilson. Fourteen of “The Women” were newcomers to the Players’ stage.
