When We Were Young and Unafriad
by Sarah Treem
Directed by Blake Harris
From the creator and showrunner of Showtime’s ‘The Affair’ comes Sarah Treem’s powerful stage play. When We Were Young and Unafraid keeps secrets, tests perceptions and challenges not only 1970 conventions but contemporary ones as well. In the early 1970s, before Roe v. Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act, Agnes has turned her quiet bed and breakfast into one of the few spots where victims of domestic violence can seek refuge. But to Agnes’s dismay, her latest runaway, Mary Anne, is beginning to influence Agnes’s college-bound daughter Penny. As the drums of a feminist revolution grow louder outside of Agnes’s tiny world, Agnes is forced to confront her own presumptions about the women she’s spent her life trying to help.
