Six Points Theater highlights the complex friendship between the first Supreme Court justices who were women — Sandra Day O’Connor, who began serving in 1981, and Ruth Bader Ginsburg, whose term began in 1993. The two firebrands didn’t always see eye to eye, but shared a common vision for women’s rights. Laura Stearns directs the play, written by Jonathan Shapiro based on Linda R. Hirshman’s book. Laura Esping and Patty Mathews take on the two powerhouses. Saturday, Oct. 21, at 8 p.m., and Sunday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m., through Nov. 5 ($26-40). More information here.
