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

“It’s a really beautiful little jewel of a piece that’s entertaining in the comedy and taps into our sense of humanity.” —Examiner.com
Written by Allison Moore
Directed by Jessica Heidt
Hannah is trying desperately to hold the façade of her perfect life together, even as her husband mysteriously calls in sick to work day after day, they struggle with infertility, and Hannah herself is on the verge of being laid off. When Hannah’s sister appears on their doorstep, she brings with her a feisty, renegade attitude and an illicit package that sends the family on an odyssey into some of the quirkier corners of Minneapolis, and into the heart of their deepest fears. Jessica Heidt directs this comedy about surviving and transcending, inspired by the 2007 collapse of the Mississippi River Bridge in Minneapolis.
