What happens in the 1920s when a servant simply stops serving, and a spinster—an unmazrried woman in her early thirties—elects to give her life a different spin? The intriguing historical comedy Miss Lulu Bett was a work ahead of its time, winning the first Pulitzer Prize for a female playwright in 1921 when Zona Gale adapted it from her own best-selling novel. One of its endings was so controversial that the playwright created a different one; we don't know which version we'll see at Walltown Children's Theatre. Director NaTasha Thompson extends this barbed examination of power dynamics in relationships to include gender and race, in the final production of this year's Women's Theatre Festival. Kieya Reddish, Jim O'Brien, and Gerard Williams star. —Byron Woods
