Pulitzer Prize-Winning The Heidi Chronicles Set to Begin at Trinity Rep
The Wendy Wasserstein play starts its run tonight.
Trinity Repertory Company continues its "Rebels, Renegades, and Pioneers" season with Wendy Wasserstein's Pulitzer Prize-winning play The Heidi Chronicles, which begins its run tonight. Vivienne Benesch directs.
Heidi Holland is coming of age during the crest of second-wave feminism. From high school in the idealistic 1960s to her adult years in the materialistic 1980s, she finds herself wanting everything a good liberal baby boomer expects: career, family, and an equal partner. Is it truly possible? The Heidi Chronicles looks at the world through the eyes of a woman searching for identity, truth, and family, and confronting what it takes to have it all.
The cast features Angela Brazil as Heidi Holland, along with Ashley Monique Butler, Rachel Christopher, Rebecca Gibel, Mauro Hantman, Anna Miles, Charlie Thurston, and Joe Wilson, Jr.
The design team features set by Lee Savage, costumes by Tracy Christensen, lighting by Dan Scully, and sound by Peter Sasha Hurowitz. Kristen Gibbs is the stage manager, with assistant direction by James D. Palmer.
