      WHY MARRY?

      Why Marry? was the first play to win a Pulitzer Prize. It opened on Broadway in 1917 - a time when more women were attending universities, entering the workforce, and struggling to obtain the vote, thus forcing a reexamination of women’s role in society. This delightful comedy explores marriage vs. living together, through the lives of three sisters. Jean is contemplating marriage because it’s expected. Lucy is married to a man who believes that women should behave the way men wish them to behave. Helen doesn’t want to ruin her friendship with a co-worker by marrying him. Since it’s ELTC’s 40th year, we’re bringing back one of our early hits, Why Marry? When ELTC produced it in the fall of 2006, it was the first time this play had been produced in 86 years. We brought back in the spring of 2007. Both times, it played before many sold-out houses. In May, 2013, ELTC’s cast reunited for a staged-reading performance in New York City at The Players Club. “There can be no real marriage - save on a basis of political, social, and economic equality.” - Jesse Lynch Williams General - $35.00 Senior (age 62+) - $30.00 Student & Military (active/retired/vet) - $20.00 Ages 12 and under - $0.00
