The Old In and Out Play NYC – What happens when young newlyweds in the era of free love realize that “happily ever after” is the last thing they’re likely to get? How do free-spirited women remain creative and sane in the face of relentless pressure to fit in? “The Old In and Out” tells the stories of four women who, while looking for love, discover their true independent selves. The play opens in the late 1960s as the young women experience love and sex for the first time. One leaves her NYC heritage to venture west and can’t always stop herself from making the wrong choices. Another, raised in the suburban west, follows her new husband on the road with an oil crew and loses her sense of purpose. They eventually land in current day Manhattan—their lives irreparably changed.
The characters tell their stories in a series of monologues based on the narrative poetry of Madeline Artenberg and Karen Hildebrand. They’ll make you laugh—and they’ll rip out your heart. Four actors—Holly Crane, Eloise Eonnet, Olivia Jampol and Rachel Ritacco—are creating the original roles for this premiere, directed by Kat Georges. A portion of profits will be donated to V-Day, a global movement to end violence against women and girls.
