This powerful play takes you inside a shelter for women on the run in the early 1970s. Penned by "House of Cards" writer Sarah Treem, the drama transports you to a time before Roe v. Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act and before women had anywhere to turn in times of distress. You'll meet Agnes, who's turned her quiet B&B into one of the few spots where a woman on the run can seek refuge. To her dismay, her latest guest is having a profound influence on her teenage daughter, forcing each girl to question their destiny. And as the drums of the feminist revolution grow louder, Agnes is forced to confront her own preconceived notions about the people she's been trying to help. See "When We Were Young and Unafraid" at Theatre Southwest in Houston. [less-]
