Rapture, Blister, Burn by Gina Gionfriddo
Running through Oct 2, 2015

This whip-crack comedy takes a look at Catherine and Gwen, who, after grad school, chose polar opposite paths and now, decades later, are unfulfilled in polar opposite ways. Each woman covets the other’s life, commencing a dangerous game of musical chairs—the prize being Gwen’s husband. With searing insight and trademark wit, this comedy is an unflinching look at gender politics in the wake of 20th-century feminist ideals. Get tickets here.
