Yale, Wendy Wasserstein wrote a one-act version of Uncommon Women and Others
as her master's thesis, and after completing her M.F.A., she expanded this
play into two acts. The revised version was produced initially at the 1977
National Playwrights Conference at the O'Neill Theatre Center in Waterford,
Connecticut, and then a few months later, by the Phoenix Theatre Company,
at the Marymount Manhattan Theatre. Uncommon Women and Others (1978) was
Wasserstein's first successful play; receiving an Obie award, among others.
