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 have not -- changed. Gionfriddo's other writing credits include Law & Order
and the Netflix series House of Cards
