In the lounge Women and Children Jack Sullivan

About This Show

Women and Children is a play about the things we are willing to give up in order to survive. Set over the course of two decades the play juxtaposes three women gathered to play a game of cards, and prepare for a confrontation with a secluded army prison where three young guards gather to play a game of cards, and prepare to torment the prisoner set in charge of them.
