Heated discussion and hearty laughter are sure to result from Rapture, Blister, Burn, the white-hot new play from Gina Gionfriddo. Twice Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, Gionfriddo -- whose recent TV work includes writing for the Emmy-nominated Netflix series House of Cards -- has crafted a play that makes audiences howl and critics swoon. Rapture, Blister, Burn centers on Catherine, a rockstar feminist academic, who returns home to take care of her elderly mother. There, she encounters an old flame and an "ex" best friend who seem to be excelling at the kind of conventional life Catherine rejected. But first impressions can be very deceiving. Desdemona Chiang directs this exploration of how the lives of women have (and have not) changed for the Aurora Theatre Company. Learn More

This play is just plain fun to see. You really get the payoff in the second act. The six female characters are all played by the same actress. She doesn't fully develop all 6 but it's a treat to see her make the transformations. The translation is notable for modernizing the narrative. At first the two male actors seemed to have been miscast but as the play goes on they both feel well suited to their respective roles.
