“I suggest you decide which kind of girl you want to be. Otherwise, someone else will make that decision for you.”

A sensational career, thrilling adventures, and a husband and children (eventually)—that’s what the women in the Fabian Publishing typing pool want: nothing less than the best of everything. UW Drama faculty member Valerie Curtis-Newton directs Julie Kramer’s adaptation of Rona Jaffe’s 1958 novel. The play gives us a funny, candid, clear-eyed glimpse into the lives of working women in Mad Men-era New York, through the gaze of the women themselves (as well as fabulous costumes, of course).

CONTENT ADVISORY: This show contains adult content and themes. It is recommended for audiences ages 15 and up.
