Playwright Victoria Stewart was inspired by two very different figures -- CNBC personality Suze Orman and Victorian novelist Henry James -- when writing her latest, most probing play, Rich Girl. For despite their differences, both Orman and James share an obsession with money and Rich Girl explores that peculiarly American fascination with startling sensitivity and imagination. When the sheltered Claudine meets the penniless Henry, the two fall helplessly in love. But for Claudine's mother, a tough-talking celebrity finance guru, this happiest of happy coincidences is a cause for suspicion and worry. Inspired by the classic play and film The Heiress, this clever new comedy examines women and their relationships with men, mothers and moolah -- if not in exactly that order. Courtney O'Connor directs the show at the Lyric Stage Company of Boston. Learn More

A Boston Premiere by Aditi Brennan Kapil
Directed by M. Bevin O'Gara
Love Person is a transcendent four-part love story told in Sanskrit, American Sign Language, English and email. Two couples are rocked to their cores when love unexpectedly transcends sexual orientation, physical attraction, and social structures. The four find themselves inextricably bound by technology, translation, and the breakdown of language itself.
This play is meant to be enjoyed by hearing and Deaf audiences alike, and therefore each performance is self-interpreted through the use of ASL-fluent actors and text projections. Patrons needing ASL preferred seating should contact us for accommodation. Audio-assistance devices will also be available for all performances except for June 2nd at 8:00pm.
