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

A very engaging story of a modern family with 2 lesbian women, a son with probably high functioning Asperger's, and a visiting photographer who specializes in taking pictures of nude women and pre-pubescent girls. Needless to say, the Body Awareness week being led by the feminist college professor does not go as planned with the artist's presence on campus and in their home. Excellent acting, clever use of small stage and props, serious modern topics with plenty of comedic moments dealing with intimate and potential relationships and views by ourselves and others of our bodies. Highly recommend it to all!

Body Awareness is being produced as the fully-staged anchor production in The Global Age Project (GAP), an Aurora Theatre Company initiative that encourages playwrights and directors to explore life in the 21st century and beyond. In addition, several new plays dealing with global age concerns will be chosen from an international pool of playwrights and presented in a series of developmental readings during the run of Body Awareness.
