WHEN WE WERE YOUNG AND UNAFRAID takes place in the early 1970s, before Roe v. Wade, and 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. 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.


Starring Linda Bradshaw ​(Agnes), Ben Gibson (Paul), Allison Paranka​ (Penny),  Laura Ray (Mary Anne) and Michelle Mary Schaefer​ (Hannah), directed by Jennifer Sturley​ and produced by Stephanie Moore and Elizabeth V. Newman.


WHEN WE WERE YOUNG AND UNAFRAID marks the fifth production for The Filigree Theatre, after the company launched its second season slate with a well-touted production of August Strindberg’s MISS JULIE in October. All productions in Filigree’s 2018-19 slate center around the theme “At The Crossroads,” with each play examining how, at crucial moments in our lives, we, as humans, find ourselves at the brink of change, faced with life and death decisions, confronted with a point of no return.
