Two-time Tony winner Cherry Jones stars in this drama about a 1970s women's refuge, playing the role of Agnes - the woman who transforms her bed and breakfast into an underground shelter for female victims of abuse. When a young runaway's more modern views cause Agnes' teenage daughter to start questioning her own future, Agnes is forced to question her own assumptions about the women she has been assisting. The play is set in the pre-Roe v. Wade era, a landmark case which helped define US abortion law.
David Grimm's tender and touching play follows Helena, widowed during World War I, who turns to the oldest profession to maintain her way of life, but can she protect her public persona or will it all end in ruin? This world premiere stars Tony-winner Nina Arianda. More infoBuy tickets
