    This was the play of the day for me and I'm so glad I had the chance to read 1900s Women Bonding. Hysteria is such dark part of our history and how badly women were treated for their "issues" the way that men wanted them treated. Everyone should meet Marie and Cassandra!

    This fits right in with the historical comedies taking over the market these days, and is utterly and ridiculously hysterical -- pun intended!

    So excited to read Weingarten's unique brand of dialogue in a period setting.
