Fresh off her Pulitzer Prize nomination for Becky Shaw, playwright Gina Gionfriddo delivers Rapture, Blister, Burn, an offbeat comedy that continues the feminist conversation -- even as it explodes it. Catherine, a rockstar academic, returns home to take care of her elderly mother. In doing so, she reconnects with her former lover, Don, and former best friend, Gwen. Gwen and Don are married with children and seem to represent the kind of conventional life Catherine rejected. But first impressions can be deceiving: As the women swap lives, the full consequences of their decisions become harder and harder to reckon. Following in the footsteps of Wendy Wasserstein's The Heidi Chronicles, Rapture, Blister, Burn explores how the lives of women have -- and haven't -- changed. Gionfriddo's other writing credits include Law & Order and the Netflix series House of Cards. Learn More

When successful television actor Andrew Rally moves to New York for the opportunity to play Hamlet on stage, he immediately encounters two problems: First, he hates Hamlet. Second, the beautiful apartment he’s renting is haunted by the ghost of legendary actor John Barrymore. The two actors engage in a wildly funny duel over women, art, success, duty, television and, yes, the apartment.
The show is not recommended for children under the age of 12.
