By Hazel Ellis
Directed by Jenn Thompson
A workplace drama laced with biting humor, in Hazel Ellis’ Women Without Men, Jean Wade is an enthusiastic young teacher new to the school; she soon finds herself at odds with her quarrelsome colleagues—especially the antagonistic Miss Connor. When Miss Connor’s life’s work, a history of “beautiful acts” through the ages, is found torn to shreds, Jean is the most likely suspect. With evidence mounting against her, will Jean fight for her career, or will she be beaten by the pettiness and jealousy that thrives in the school’s cloistered environment?
