Quotes & Highlights

“Smart, suggestive, and surprisingly moving.” San Francisco Chronicle
“Something magical…one of the best new plays of the season.” New York Times


Why is the playwright’s mom sitting on a recliner in the middle of the stage? The hilarious Well begins with OBIE Award-winning writer/performer Lisa Kron (2.5 Minute Ride; The Five Lesbian Brothers) performing a theater piece about her personal experiences of healing. But soon an irreverent coup d’etat breaks out onstage: the company of actors critiques the script, Kron’s onstage flashbacks don’t match her memories, and she quickly loses control. At the center of the chaos is her armchair-bound mother (played by Jayne Houdyshell in an award-winning performance), who keeps inserting her own hilarious commentary.

Written by Lisa Kron
