Critics cheer for Cherry Jones and the company of WHEN WE WERE YOUNG AND UNAFRAID

1,435 views 3 weeks ago
Two-time Tony® Winner Cherry Jones (Doubt, "24″) returns to MTC for Sarah Treem's ("House of Cards," "In Treatment") powerful new play that takes us inside an underground women's shelter in the early 1970s...before Roe v. Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act, before women had places to turn in times of distress.

Agnes (Cherry Jones) has turned her quiet bed and breakfast into one of the few spots where a woman on the run can seek refuge. But to Agnes' dismay, her latest young runaway Mary Anne is having a profound influence on her teenage daughter Penny, forcing each girl to question her destiny. And as the drums of the feminist revolution grow louder, Agnes is forced to confront her own presumptions about the people she's been trying to help.

Deeply moving and beautifully rendered, WHEN WE WERE YOUNG AND UNAFRAID explores the passion of youth, the wisdom of age, and the people who awaken us to new possibilities.
