Ready yourselves, gentlemen, because the women of the “uncommon bell curve” won’t hold their tongues.
The nine women of LAB! Theatre’s performance of “Uncommon Women and Others” each present their own story of a college girl as she attempts to plan out her post-college life in the second-wave feminist society of the 1970s.
As the play opens, five of the women are reunited after college, sharing their success stories and reminiscing about their days at the all-girls Mount Holyoke College in Massachusetts.
The plot is driven strictly by a series of flashbacks, leaving the actresses to create a story through their varying character portrayals.
All nine women are uniquely complex and isolated by personality, yet each of them are affected in various ways by the difficulties of a male-dominated society.
