RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN
Nashville Repertory Theatre's production of Rapture, Blister, Burn by Gina Gionfriddo. Live onstage at Tennessee Performing Arts Center's (TPAC) Johnson Theater, September 5–19, 2015 with previews September 3–4.
Friends Catherine and Gwen reunite after more than a decade apart when Catherine returns home to care for her mother. Catherine has had a dazzling career as a high-profile author while Gwen chose to raise a family—after marrying the man Catherine gave up to pursue her goals. As they catch up, each woman begins to covet the other’s life and question her own path. The New York Times calls this Pulitzer Prize-nominated play “intensely smart, immensely funny” as it explores life choices in the wake of 20th century feminist ideals.
