When We Were Young and Unafraid
By Sarah Treem (Showtime’s The Affair, The Here and Now)
Directed by Tracy Ward
Stacy Ross returns to Custom Made to star in this vital play, set the early 1970’s, where Agnes (Ross) 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. As the drums of a feminist revolution grow louder outside her tiny world, Agnes is forced to confront her own presumptions about the women she’s spent her life trying to help. When We Were Young and Unafraid reminds us that the path to today’s rights were perilous and their future is not guaranteed, while telling a personal tale of change and redemption.
