Abducted by Michele Aldin Kushner - A successful businesswoman and mother of two grown children, Diane, is getting her things in order. As she prepares for 'departure' from her present life, her daughter fights to get her psychiatric help. Her boyfriend wants to reclaim the woman with whom he fell in love - and her son wants to go with her. Is this departure being forced upon her or does she wish to leave life on her own terms?
Initiated in 1992 to provide a working platform for the under-served voices of women writing for the theatre, CSC's Women Playwrights Series (WPS) has now featured and helped to develop the new work of over 60 playwrights from around the country, and produced fifteen World Premieres in as many years, from works developed in the playwright series. Plays presented in the developmental WPS program are finalists in the Susan Glaspell Award Competition, and are under consideration for full production in a subsequent season at the Centenary Stage Company, the professional theatre in residence on the campus of Centenary University.
