A finalist for the 2013 Pulitzer Prize in Drama, Gionfriddo’s play offers a multigenerational examination of women besieged by changing attitudes toward feminism, marriage, and success. Former college classmates, Catherine (a flourishing academic) and Gwen (a married mother of two), reunite decades later to discover that each covets the other’s life. As they struggle to reconcile the principles of feminist theory with their individual aspirations, the women realize that the pursuit of happiness is more challenging than it seems.
Rapture, Blister, Burn, originally written by Gina Gionfriddo, is directed by Jeff Grace.
