A MAN'S WORLD by Rachel Crothers
Monday
SEPTEMBER 18, 2017 

We hope we’ll see you at our PROJECT SHAW on Monday, September 18th with a play written, not by Shaw, but by Rachel Crothers! A MAN’S WORLD is the logical next step in our theme for the year. This charming and powerfully entertaining play from 1910 dives into the inequalities we all face and the double standards in judging male/female behavior that seem never to go away. Award-winning Jenn Thompson will direct the evening!
