About this show

Joan Didion's bestselling memoir recounts an almost unfathomable period in her life when she grappled with her husband's sudden death and daughter's illness. This stage adaptation captures the compassion, humor, and bewilderment of a fiercely intelligent woman as her world lurches suddenly from the ordinary to the unimaginable. Filled with raw candor, this "unmissable theatre" (Variety) is a love letter to a child and a tribute to an extraordinary, unconventional marriage, all told by a brilliant storyteller with a gift for the absurd.
