By arrangement with Hall Leonard.
Mary Haines learns from a gossipy manicurist that her husband, Stephen, is having an affair with a shop-girl named Crystal, thus ending her marriage. So begins Clare Boothe Luce’s social satire The Women, which was a smash hit when first performed on Broadway in 1936 and has enjoyed several revival productions during the 1970s and 1990s. The play is set in the world of high society Manhattan, in a time when women’s lives revolved around their efforts to look beautiful to obtain and hold on to wealthy husbands.
