RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN by Gina Gionfriddo
directed by Anya Kremenetsky
April 26-May 11, 2014
at the Minneapolis Theatre Garage, 711 W Frankling Avenue, Minneapolis
Is the grass really greener on the other side? Obie Award winning playwright Gina Gionfriddo’s searing new comedy RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN is a wickedly perceptive and surprisingly relevant take on cross-generational feminism, exploring the evolving attitudes of women towards career, marriage and family – and the consequence of choice. After grad school, Catherine pursued a career as a feminist academic who soon became a literary rockstar and favorite of the pundit circuit, while her college friend Gwen decided to build a home with her husband and children. Catherine has returned home to care for her ailing mother Alice and reconnects with Gwen who is married to her old college flame Don. Both are dabbling in regret and attempt to explore the road not taken, with hilarious and surprising results. Gionfriddo mixes love, emotion, envy, and academics in a play the New York Daily News called “a smart, funny, and lighting-paced look at feminism.”
