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

Excellent production of a very relevant 100 plus year old play. The actors were especially good. The production is slow but then again, that's Ibsen. Second time I’ve seen the play. The last time was in London with Paul Scofield and I believe Vanessa Redgrave.

I was disappointed with this slow moving production. No fault of the actors as most of them are top notch as I have seen most of them in other productions. One actor did fall short for me as if lines were rote and just being stated not acted. ...continued
Home now, after serving time in prison for embezzlement, Borkman has spent the last eight years pacing alone and making plans for a comeback. Meanwhile, his estranged wife and her twin sister vie for the loyalty of the prized son.
Directed by former Artistic Director Barbara Oliver and featuring James Carpenter (The Master Builder) and Karen Grassle (Caroline “Ma” Ingalls from TV’s popular series Little House on the Prairie).
