News   Mint Theater Company Will Present Women Without Men
 
Mint Theater Company will present Hazel Ellis' Women Without Men in an effort to continue to produce the work of forgotten female dramatists. Performances begin Jan. 30, 2016, at New York City Center Stage II. Jenn Thompson directs.

The all-female cast includes Mary Bacon, Joyce Cohen, Shannon Harrington, Kate Middleton, Aedin Moloney, Alexa Shae Niziak, Kellie Overbey, Dee Pelletier, Beatrice Tulchin, Emily Walton and Amelia White.

The show is described as such: "A workplace drama laced with biting humor, Hazel Ellis’s Women Without Men is set in the teacher’s lounge of a private girls boarding school in Ireland in the 1930’s. Jean Wade is an enthusiastic young teacher new to the school, where she soon finds herself popular with the students and 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 the evidence mounting against her and animosity in the air, will Jean fight for her career, or will she be beaten by the pettiness and jealousy that thrives in the school’s cloistered environment?"

Women Without Men will feature scenic design by Vicki R. Davis, costume design by Martha Halley, lighting design by Traci Klainer Polimeni and sound design by Jane Shaw.
