ART: Women of a Certain Age

by

The best works of art do two things: captivate the attention of their audience, and leave them thinking. The newest production in the Age of Women series from Alley Repertory Theater seems ready to do both. Set on Nov. 8, 2016, the day the results of the presidential election came in, Women of a Certain Age follows a household of middle-aged and elderly women "considering the future of their country, town, and home ... at a time when the game seems rigged and the rules are forever changing." Written by award-winning playwright Richard Nelson, Women is the third in a trilogy that follows the family through the election year. Catch a preview of Nelson's timely work Thursday, March 1, evening showings March 2, 3, 8, 9 and 10, or a Sunday matinee March 11 to join Alley Rep in celebrating strong women.
