WOMEN w/o WALLS (full length)

Inspired by Sartre's NO EXIT and Dante's INFERNO. An absurdist but very real look at love and mortality. A young woman is trapped in a runaway subway car rushing to an unknown destination. A cobweb covered ancient knits in the corner. A one-legged homeless woman and a music-addicted punk turn the space into a cycle of attraction, hope and despair.

WOMEN w/o WALLS (full length)

    ROBIN RICE’s play, “Women W/O Walls (Full Length)”, has all the elements of fear, anger, regret, confusion, rage, denial, and more. We are captivated by the shear power of the characters and situation in which they find themselves. I was transfixed by the dialogue, trying to comprehend what was the real meaning, and yet, I knew all too well what I needed to know. You will find this play well-worth your time, and you will want to reread it to discover the many layers and depth of a well-written play.

    This is so much fun! Trapped in purgatory, we take a train ride that is one hell of an adventure. We're hooked for the entire ride. Masterful!
