As its first production of 2013, Entity Theatre e.V. presented The Women, written by Clare Boothe Luce and directed by Diana Ratcliff. The Women is a comedy of manners. The play is an acidic commentary on the pampered lives and power struggles of various wealthy Manhatten socialites and up-and-comers and the gossip that propels and damages their relationships. While men frequently are the subject of their lively discussions and play an important role in the action on-stage, they are strictly characters mentioned but are never seen.
