Austin Playhouse Larry L. King Theatre

Austin Playhouse proudly presents one of the first U.S. productions of Linda Griffiths’ witty, wild, and stunning new play,
Age of Arousal.

Age of Arousal, Griffiths’ has created a fantasy-filled re-working of George Gissing’s 19th century novel, The Odd Women. In late 19th century England, a population imbalance had almost twice as many women as men running around London. This meant that many women would never find husbands, would never be paired; they would be odd.

Fusing the political battle of the 19th century suffragettes with the personal battles of the sexes,
Age of Arousal creates a unique world to explore love, desire, and the cost of equality. Populating this world are six compelling characters brought to life by some of Austin’s most accomplished actors.
