Directed by David Cromer (Our Town, Tribes, The House of Blue Leaves), Women or Nothing began previews Aug. 28 and will run through Oct. 13 at the Linda Gross Theater.

"Women or Nothing is a play about two women so desperate to have a child that one of them will even sleep with a man," press notes state. "Who the man is, what he thinks is going on, what the women think about what he thinks, and what the mother of one of the women reveals about her own colorful past — it all defies belief. Why then does it all make sense?"
