Manhattan Theatre Club's world premiere of WHEN WE WERE YOUNG AND UNAFRAID, the new play by Sarah Treem ("House of Cards," "In Treatment"), directed by Tony Award winner Pam MacKinnon (Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, Clybourne Park), opens tonight, June 17 at MTC at New York City Center - Stage I (131 West 55th Street) in a strictly limited engagement through Sunday, August 10. BroadwayWorld bring you highlights from the play below!

WHEN WE WERE YOUNG AND UNAFRAID features two-time Tony winner Cherry Jones, Obie Award Winner Cherise Boothe(MTC's Ruined, Milk Like Sugar), Patch Darragh (Appropriate, Kin), Zoe Kazan (Ruby Sparks, Behanding in Spokane), and Morgan Saylor ("Homeland," Jamie Marks Is Dead).

Two-time Tony winner Cherry Jones (The Glass Menagerie, Doubt, "24") returns to MTC for Sarah Treem's ("House of Cards," "In Treatment") powerful new play that takes us inside an underground women's shelter in the early 1970s... before Roe v. Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act, before women had places to turn in times of distress.

Agnes (Cherry Jones) has turned her quiet bed and breakfast into one of the few spots where a woman on the run can seek refuge. But to Agnes' dismay, her latest young runaway Mary Anne (Zoe Kazan) is having a profound influence on her teenage daughter Penny (Morgan Saylor), forcing each girl to question her destiny. And as the drums of the feminist revolution grow louder, Agnes is forced to confront her own presumptions about the people she's been trying to help.
