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

David Adjmi’s recent Off-Broadway plays, Elective Affinities (a monologue performed by Zoe Caldwell that was the hottest ticket in New York last fall) and Stunning, were hailed by The New Yorker for their “gorgeous blend of narrative, girl talk, and politics.” His play The Evildoers was developed at the Sundance Institute and the Royal Court Theatre in London, and premiered in 2008 at the Yale Repertory Theatre. Other plays include Strange Attractors, and Caligula. Adjmi is the recipient of numerous awards for his work, including the Helen Merrill Award, the Marian Seldes-Garson Kanin Fellowship, and McKnight and Jerome Fellowships from The Playwrights' Center. A collection of his work, Stunning and Other Plays, was published by Theatre Communications Group in 2011. Adjmi is currently at work on a "viral" memoir for HarperCollins. His play 3C premieres at Rattlestick Playwrights Theatre in June 2012.
This play is recommended for those in Grade Six and above, and features strong language.
