Uncommon Women and Others

Set amidst the second-wave feminist movement of the 1970s, Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Wendy Wasserstein’s Uncommon Women and Others follows the lives, loves, and losses of a close-knit circle of friends at Mount Holyoke College (itself Wasserstein’s own alma matter). As the women reunite six years after graduation, the story flashes back to the seminal moments in their lives as classmates to examine what inspired them, what affected them, and ultimately what shaped them. Told in the signature voice of Wendy Wasserstein at the very inception of her illustrious career, Uncommon Women and Others is a poignant story about the intimate connection between who you were, who you are, and who you want to be.

Directed by Leigh Silverman, and featuring an all-star cast, all proceeds from the reading will benefit TDF Open Doors (, a mentoring program co-founding by Ms. Wasserstein and Roy Harris that “matches dozens of distinguished theatre and dance professionals with small groups of high school students with no prior exposure to theatre.”

The evening is produced by The Indigo Theatre Project (Nick Gereffi and Rachel Sussman, Co-Founding Artistic Directors), a theater company that strives to unite passion with purpose by producing readings of notable plays to benefit charities aligned with the work being read.
