Corn Stock Theatre presents: When We Were Young and Unafraid

Corn Stock Theatre

On this week's episode of Out and About, host Jenn Gordon is joined by Rebekah Dentino and LaCora Holesome to talk about Corn Stock Theatre’s production of When We Were Young and Unafraid, a play written by Sarah Treem.

In the early 1970s, before Roe v. Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act, Agnes has turned her quiet bed and breakfast into one of the few spots where victims of domestic violence can seek refuge. 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.

Show dates are March 18, 19, 25, and 26 at 7:30pm and March 20 and 27 at 2:30pm at Corn Stock Theatre Center in Upper Bradley Park. For tickets and more information visit Corn Stock Theatre.
