Presented by Firehouse Theater Company in Denver through March 14th (the remaining performances have been CANCELLED). Playwright Sarah Treem’s (“House of Cards,” “In Treatment”) powerful play, When We Were Young and Unafraid, takes us inside an underground women’s shelter in the early 1970s…before Roe v. Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act, and 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. But to Agnes’s dismay, her latest young runaway Mary Anne is having a profound influence on her teenage daughter Penny, forcing each girl to question her destiny. 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.
