When We Were Young and Unafraid is a powerful new play that takes you inside an underground women's shelter in the early 1970s. Penned by House of Cards writer Sarah Treem, this drama transports you to a time before Roe v. Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act and before women had places to turn in times of distress. You'll meet Agnes, who's turned her quiet bed and breakfast into one of the few spots where a woman on the run can seek refuge. To her dismay, her latest young runaway is having a profound influence on her teenage daughter, forcing each girl to question their 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. The West Coast premiere of When We Were Young and Unafraid comes to The Box at the Fox Entertainment Plaza in Riverside.
Due to some explicit language and sexual situations, this production is not recommended for children. Parental guidance is suggested.
