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

These people were real actors. Very believable. I totally disagree with the review before mine. People should come see this performance. It's about real life. We didn't all grow up as Wally and the Beaver. They did a beautiful job of handling a very sensitive situation in an extremely dysfunctional family. Not a bad seat in the place, but they need to find some way to get the word out so those seats can have more people in them. It was a very dramatic, touching story to tell.

Mia is at boarding school. She has access to drugs. They are Martha’s. Henry is preparing for art college. He has access to alcohol. From Martha. Martha controls their lives. Martha is their mother _That Face _ is a hard-hitting, intense, visceral, and “gob-smacking” dissection of parent-child relationships.
