Leave it to Joan Didion to describe the indescribable. Didion, a perennial front-runner for the "Best Living American Writer" title, found a powerful and poignant way to talk about grief in her acclaimed memoir, The Year of Magical Thinking. Now the award-winning book is an equally acclaimed play. This 90-minute one-woman performance, starring Linda Purl (The Office, Homeland, True Blood), recounts the fallout from the sudden death of the author's husband, novelist John Gregory Dunne, shortly before the couple's fortieth wedding anniversary. That devastating period also saw the death of the couple's daughter, Quintana, from a battery of acute and chronic illnesses. Directed by Jenny Sullivan, Purl brings Didion's crippling grief and her ultimate, inspiring journey to acceptance to life at Laguna Playhouse. Learn More

Hershey Felder is an incredible performer. He is a accomplished musician with an extraordinary vocal range. His story telling brings you totally into the scene he is creating.
