In recent times playwrights have been inviting us into worlds we would never know without them.

When energy is low, a thermodynamic system can maintain its order — but when heat is added, chaos ensues. In Treem's thought-provoking play, this heated chaos comes in the form of exhilarating passion, all-consuming rage, and everything that exists within the surprisingly gray area that lies between the two. As laws of physics and nature continue to get the best of her characters, Treem takes advantage of the surrounding rubble, meticulously examining the nuts and bolts that fuse people together in what seem to be nothing but ticking time bombs. Tony Award-winning director Pam MacKinnon contributes an exacting eye to the play's very specific world, set in at what seemed like the height of cultural entropy for women. Homemakers were being replaced by bra burners, secretaries by career women, and patriarchal universities by coed institutions of higher learning. Yet, within this particular social and political context, MacKinnon subtly draws out the enormous breadth of Treem's layered work that makes When We Were Young and Unafraid much meatier than just another drama about the enduring female struggle. Just outside the bubbling core of this social upheaval, we meet a middle-aged woman named Agnes the incomparable Cherry Jones.

Raising awareness about the brutalities of domestic violence is evidently the main focus of this play, and it is a righteous and necessary goal indeed. The play is set in the s, when domestic violence was often ignored and brushed aside as a private matter — the Violence Against Women Act, which recognized domestic violence as a federal crime, was not passed by Congress until Although depicting situations from decades ago, the delivery and the effortless flow of the script make the play thoroughly relatable and familiar. Treem succeeded in creating an atmosphere of extreme modernity, thus permeating the sense that domestic violence and revolutionary feminism are issues that still need more attention and publicity today.
Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act, before women had places to turn in times of distress. Agnes has turned her quiet bed and breakfast into one of the few spots where a woman on the run can seek refuge. And as the drums of the feminist revolution grow louder, Agnes is forced to confront her own presumptions about the people she's been trying to help. June 19, The year is , and a new age of feminism is dawning as women grope to find voices to match their evolving identities. Well, some of them are groping. Such meticulously laid-out clarity may be a boon to those who like the assistance of road signs in finding their way to a theme. But it subverts the potential narrative power of this earnest, thoughtful drama, which opened on Tuesday night in a Manhattan Theater Club production starring the formidable Cherry Jones and directed by Pam MacKinnon.

One of the greatest experiences a theater can offer its audience is exposure to newer works by sometimes young playwrights. The Rochester theater community is lucky to have many theaters that do this consciously, working new plays or musicals into their seasons — developing the work onsite, even — and when the show creates a conversation, that's an added plus. Fair to say she's ambitious.
