Playwright Lisa Kron reprises her Tony Award-nominated starring role in first post-Broadway run of her play Well. Leigh Silverman, who helmed the Broadway run, directs the Huntington's production.
Well follows Lisa's journey in, away from, and back to her family home in suburban Michigan. With the help of five other actors, Lisa relives elementary school days complete with puppy love and bullies, wacky neighborhood events planned by her mother, and her college-age time at a residential clinic where she was cured of allergies and discovered her independence. Veteran character actor Mary Pat Gleason plays Lisa's mother Ann, who at first does not want to be an onstage character. But she unwittingly wrests control of the play from her daughter and the other actors reenacting Lisa's versions of the events, to help them "get the story right."
