20th Century Blues features Beth Dixon, Franchelle Stewart Dorn, Polly Draper, Kathryn Grody, Ellen Parker, and Charles Socarides.

The play is described as follows: "A reunion. An argument. A Ted Talk. Emotional mutiny. And a bond that connects four women who meet once a year for a photo shoot, chronicling their changing (and aging) selves as they navigate through love, careers, children, and major world events. But, when these private photographs have the potential to go public, their relationships are tested, forcing the women to confront who they are, what they've become, and how they'll deal with whatever lies ahead."
