What We're Up Against

Theatre at Grand Valley presents: What We're Up Against.

The New York Times referred to What We're Up Against as "cathartic and clarifying, a map of a minefield drawn in bold cartoon colors." In this play, Rebeck explores the ways women are both quietly and loudly undermined in male-dominated professions and how one young architect reacts to this seemingly impenetrable glass ceiling.
