"The Old In and Out" play set for world premiere June 14 in 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? "The Old In and Out," a new play by Madeline Artenberg and Karen Hildebrand, directed by Kat Georges, tells the stories of four free-spirited women who, while looking for love, discover their true independent selves. 

Not since "The Vagina Monologues" has live theater captured the voices of contemporary women with such honesty and compassion. Adult themes and language. 

A portion of profits will be donated to V-Day, a global movement to end violence against women and girls.
