The Savannah Sipping Society

In this delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate—and an impromptu happy hour—and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. Over the course of six months, filled with laughter, hilarious misadventures, and the occasional liquid refreshment, these middle-aged women successfully bond and find the confidence to jumpstart their new lives. Together, they discover lasting friendships and a renewed determination to live in the moment—and most importantly, realize it’s never too late to make new old friends.

Will they survive the day? And at what price? It just may be too much for them to handle!

The Cake

Della makes cakes, not judgment calls – those she leaves to her husband, Tim. But when the girl she helped raise comes back home to North Carolina to get married, and the fiancé is actually a fiancée, Della’s life gets turned upside down.

When We Were Young & Unafraid

Playwright Sarah Treem’s (“House of Cards,” “In Treatment”) powerful play takes us inside an underground women’s shelter in the early 1970s…before Roe v. Wade, before the Violence Against Women Act, before women had places to turn in times of distress. In this play, Agnes, a strong-willed, loner of a woman, has turned her quiet bed and breakfast into one of the few spots where a woman on the run can seek refuge. But to Agnes’s dismay, her latest feisty young runaway Mary Anne is having a profound influence on her teenage daughter Penny, forcing each girl to question her destiny. And as the drums of the feminist revolution grow louder, Agnes is forced to confront her own presumptions about the people she’s been trying to help.

What is love versus infatuation versus obsession? What is the role of women? Can feminism be reconciled with marriage and family? How can a mother guide a daughter without alienating her? Why do women make self-defeating decisions when virtually certain of the dark consequences? These are among the questions explored in Sarah Treem’s entertaining and sometimes surprising When We Were Young and Unafraid.
