When: Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m. and Sundays, 2 p.m. Continues through March 20 2016
In the rarefied Manhattan social scene circa 1936, women and men don't socialize together. And so in Clare Boothe Luce's comedy of manners The Women, women make up the entirety of the cast. That doesn't mean men don't play a role. Mary, an upper-middle class mother of two, fears she's losing her husband to a younger (and lower-class) gold-digger, but her friends offer little sympathy. Instead they hurl smiling insults and offer catty advice about what it takes to be the ideal woman. Clayton Community Theatre presents The Women at 8 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and at 2 p.m. Sunday (March 10 through 20) at the Washington University South Campus Theater (6501 Clayton Road, Richmond Heights; 314-721-9228 or www.placeseveryone.org). Tickets are $15 to $20.
