Clare Booth Luce was the first American woman appointed to a major ambassadorial post (Italy), as well as a journalist, congresswoman and playwright. She was famous for her acidic wit, and The Women, her much-debated and oft-revived comedy of back-stabbing society women, was the comedic Broadway smash of 1936. The play’s topics - marriage, divorce, friendship, infidelity, gossip and class differences - continue to appeal to audiences today. Upon Luce’s death in 1987, The Washington Post wrote, “She raised early feminist hell…she was neither fearful nor ashamed of what she meant to say.”
Directed by Blake Hackler, assistant professor in the Division of Theatre.
