Showing this week at Meadows: ‘The Women’

This week, Meadows theatre will be performing the play, “The Women,” by Clare Boothe Luce.

The 1936 Broadway hit will be hitting the Garson stage this week.

This play is an uproarious commentary on the lives of wealthy Manhattan women and the gossip that propels them.

In addition to being a playwright, Luce was the first American woman appointed to a major ambassadorial post and a journalist. She is famous for her acidic wit and early
feminist themes.

The plot involves a group of women and their struggle to play their respective roles in a society that consists of power, hierarchy, vanity, comedy, tragedy, hope
and disappointment.

Blake Hackler, SMU associate professor of theatre, directs the show and 19 undergraduate and graduate Meadows theatre students portray the myriad of characters in this oft-revived and much adored comedy.

Catch the show at 8 p.m. Oct. 2-5 and at 2 p.m. Oct. 5-6 in the Greer Garson Theatre in the Owen Arts Center.

Tickets are $13 for adults, $10 for seniors, $7 for students, faculty & staff.
