1 - 2 weeks availability
These six plays present varying accounts of the battle of the sexes in the early years of the 20th century. The subjects include the double standard, the advent of the "New Woman" and turn-of-the-century feminism, and the clash between a woman's career and conventional marriage. "Delightful...these plays...provide wonderful insights into the collective mentality of the period."-Library Journal.
