Cherry Jones as Agnes in 'When We Were Young and Unafraid'.
'When We Were young and Unafraid' is set in the years before Roe v. Wade and the Violence Against Women Act.

The world premiere of Sarah Treem’s When We Were Young and Unafraid opens officially on June 17 at New York City Center—Stage One. Directed by Pam McKinnon, the Manhattan Theatre Club production stars Tony winner Cherry Jones.

When We Were Young and Unafraid is set 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. Agnes (Jones) 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’ dismay, her latest young runaway is having a profound influence on her teenage daughter, 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.

In addition to Jones, the cast of When We Were Young and Unafraid includes Zoe Kazan, Morgan Saylor, Cherise Boothe and Patch Darragh.
