By Clare Boothe Luce
Directed by Carol Zippel
The Women, by Clare Booth Luce, is a brilliant play, most recently portrayed in a feature film starring Meg Ryan, Annette Benning and an all-star cast. Aside from the novelty of a large cast of women (including no male characters at all), The Women is an immensely entertaining panorama of our modern, metropolitan world from the female perspective. What seems on the surface to be an unflattering picture of womanhood reveals a human understanding of and sympathy for some of its outstanding features. The plot involves the efforts of a group of women to play their respective roles in an artificial society that consists of vain show, comedy, tragedy, hope and disappointment.
