“The entire UNCSA season is delightful, but there is one problem—too much to see
and hear! The Subscription Series presented a great solution for us. We bought our
subscriptions, marked down the dates, and knew we wouldn’t miss these wonderful
performances. Plus, we saved money! We plan to buy all of the subscriptions again this
year, but this time we are going to buy extras, so we can bring friends!”

Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece revolves around the residents of a pleasant English country home. In the early 19th century, a young genius and her tutor negotiate a house undergoing social change, while the same house is occupied by 20th century academics trying to discover if the former occupants hosted a young Lord Byron. Part intellectual mystery and part emotional investigation of the chaos imbued in both love and nature.

The Women, by Claire Booth Luce

Directed by Giovanna Sardelli

Luce’s dark comedy tells the story of a well-mannered wife whose husband leaves her for someone distinctly less well behaved. Written in 1936, The Women has endured as a shockingly modern take on self-reliance and resilience, and its acid-tongued dialogue remains as sharp as ever.
