Written by Celeste Bedford Walker ABOUT THE PLAY Back by popular demand, in the autumns of their lives, three sophisticated and successful women find themselves living single and ready to mingle...but this time with much (much) younger men. A recent widow, a divorcée, and a career woman all use their social status and wealth to ensnare their younger male suitors. But don’t you dare call them “cougars,”...they would prefer “black panthers.” This fun, feisty, romantic comedy explores the dynamics between the sexes, and highlights when a woman knows what she wants...she knows how to get it.
