The Women is a comedy of manners by Clare Boothe Luce.



The play is an acerbic commentary on the pampered lives and power struggles of various wealthy Manhattan socialites and up-and-comers and the gossip that propels and damages their relationships. While men frequently are the subject of their lively discussions and play an important role in the action on-stage, they are strictly characters mentioned but never seen.



The original Broadway production, directed by Robert B. Sinclair, opened on December 26, 1936 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre, where it ran for 657 performances with an all-female cast that included Arlene Francis, Ilka Chase, and Marjorie Main.

BWW Review: BATTERY DANCE FESTIVAL Continues to Enthrall
by Juan Michael Porter II - Aug 22, 2016

'Lovely, never, never change. Keep your breathless charm. Won't you please arrange it? 'Cause I love you.' Those glorious Dorothy Fields penned lyrics to Jerome Kern's evergreen 'The Way You Look Tonight' bubbled through my head during Kilowatts Dance Theatre's joyful performance of Jaime Shannon's 'Flights and Follys'. It was just a couple of swells dancing with their lady-friends to the type of tunes that Gram and Pops listened to when new; back when 'it weren't no sin' to revel in the unabashed sunshine of life. How wonderful to visit those times again. (more...)

Marty Duncan, Ed.D. Promotes Historical Novel THE PILOT'S MATE
by BWW News Desk - Aug 18, 2016

The Pilot's Mate sketches the history of the Anunnaki Lords who 'from the Heavens came down' to mine gold in South Africa and Peru. The 30,000 Nineveh tablets reveal they had bases on Mars and temples in Sumeria. Celiste, a royal princess, is warned she will see an 'angry, black cloud' that destroys cities. Her people know the air of Mars is losing its atmosphere. They leave their older parents and emigrate to Earth where the men are 'snarled' into the Army of Enlil. Celiste agrees to lead 'her women' to rebuild a village (Arad) west of the Dead Sea. There are problems. Thirty-six women with only four guards means Celiste must warn the men there will be no 'socializing' with The Women. One of the guards is accused of abusing a woman; the man escapes to serve the Army of Enlil. The Women are warned that war is imminent. Celiste and her women prepare a refuge in the mountains. They are on the path up to their refuge when a brilliant flash of light occurs. Celiste turns to see a 'black, angry cloud' blooming above Sodom. Her mate, meanwhile, goes missing for 90 days. She begins to worry that Deem, a Vimana pilot, has been snared by Inanna, a nortorious seducer of men (as described by the Sumeria tablets). The Pilot's Mate includes End Notes and an Annotated Bibliography of 20 pages. The Pilot's Mate is available in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: The Pilot's Mate By Marty Duncan, Ed.D.
