WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Vanessa Redgrave stars in Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking, a one-woman play based on her autobiographical book of the same name. David Hare directs. In the play, Redgrave relives the unforgettable night in Joan Didion's life when, even as her only child lay in a coma, her husband of 40 years, writer John Gregory Dunne, died suddenly of a massive coronary as they sat down to dinner in their New York apartment. Capturing the compassion, humor, and bewilderment of a fiercely intelligent woman whose world lurches suddenly from the ordinary to the unimaginable, The Year of Magical Thinking is a love letter to a child and a tribute to an extraordinary, unconventional marriage told with raw candor and a storyteller's gift for the absurd. This is a limited engagement for 24 weeks only.
