The Women

March 5, 2020 @ 7:30 pm


‘The Women’ tells a story of struggle and strength for International Women’s Day
St. Augustine, Fla. – The Flagler College Department of Visual and Performing Arts will
present Clare Boothe Luce’s “The Women” with performances starting March 4 in Flagler
College’s Lewis Auditorium.

Set in the 1930s, the play tells the story of Mary Haines, a New York City socialite, who discovers
her husband is having an affair. Mary must decide whether to feign ignorance and save her
marriage or divorce her husband and allow her rival to replace her.

True to its name, “The Women” is an entirely female cast. Although the script calls for 35
speaking parts, the Theatre Arts department was able to cast 20 students, with some playing as
many as four different parts. The play can be a challenge to produce, due to its large cast and
many locations, but Program Director for Theatre Arts, Paul Denayer, designed a set to
accommodate the scope of the play.

“The issues these women face are timeless,” said Elaina Wahl-Temple, resident artist and
director of the show. “The script is full of strong women facing difficult challenges and rising to
meet them.”

Presented by special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, “The Women” will run March 4-
7 at 7:30 p.m. and March 8 at 2 p.m. All performances take place in the Lewis Auditorium at 14
Granada Street.
“It is wonderful timing that our run coincides with International Women’s Day,” said Wahl Temple. “A fitting tribute to the ladies of the play as well as the playwright herself.”

Tickets are $15 for general admission and may be purchased online at tickets.flagler.edu or at
the Lewis Auditorium box office. Flagler faculty, staff, students and their immediate family
members may obtain one free ticket directly from the box office. Non-Flagler students may
purchase a discounted $5 ticket with their identification. During hours of operation, the box
office can be reached at 904-826-8600
