Nora’s Salon South: They Must Be Women Now!
by Nedra Pezold Roberts
directed by Jacqueline Trimble

Monday, February 12th at 7pm
at The NewSouth Bookstore (105 S Court Street)
in Downtown Montgomery, AL

They must be women now. A forceful command and an ominous threat. Why do women have to be confined in order to learn their place in society? And how many kinds of prisons have they endured over the ages? Social, economic, religious, political restraints—to name only a few—have restricted women’s growth and empowerment, but toward what end? In a contemporary genesis of Euripides’ Antigone, a family of Southern women struggle to discern what needs to be buried, to understand the difference between the impulse to hide from pain and the strength to lay that pain to rest. These women are shaped by their time, their culture, and their individual journeys. It is their job and their lot to discover themselves—and become women now.
