Mad Horse Theatre Company Presents WHEN WE WERE YOUNG AND UNAFRAID, September 29 - October 23

Mad Horse Theatre Company presents When We were Young and Unafraid by Sarah Treem, September 29 - October 23. When We were Young and Unafraid by Sarah Treem explores questions of sex, power, violence and femininity.

Set in 1972, before Roe v. Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act, Agnes runs a quiet bed and breakfast and a refuge for victims of domestic violence. But to Agnes's dismay, her latest runaway, Mary Anne, is beginning to influence Agnes's college-bound daughter Penny. As the drums of a feminist revolution grow louder outside of Agnes's tiny world, Agnes is forced to confront her own presumptions about the women she's spent her life trying to help.

"This show is a feminist time capsule of sorts, but it isn't just a story stuck in its time. By engaging with this "time-capsule" the audience will be able to connect the past to the present. This play allows us to see how far we have come since the 1970s, yet asks us to consider what hasn't changed, and how much farther there is to go." - Whitney Brown, Director

The cast includes Mad Horse Company Emeritus Christine Louise Marshall; company members, Allison McCall and Savannah Irish; and guest artists, Emma Mayberry and Jared Mongeau.
