When We Were Young and Unafraid
by Filigree Theatre

May. 20

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’ dismay, her latest runaway, Mary Anne, is beginning to influence Agnes’ college-bound daughter Penny.  Meanwhile, another woman, Hannah, keeps coming by the bed and breakfast on her way to Womynworld, a lesbian separatist community.  As a feminist revolution grows louder outside of Agnes’ tiny world, these four women find their strength and confront their fears together.
