RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN
by Gina Gionfriddo

March 11 – April 12
Directed by Shannon Mahoney

The Boston Globe called RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN a “shrewd, incisive, thoroughly winning comedy.” After grad school, Catherine and Gwen chose polar opposite paths. Catherine built a career as a rockstar academic, while Gwen built a home with her husband and children. Decades later, unfulfilled in polar opposite ways, each woman covets the other’s life, commencing a dangerous game of musical chairs—the prize being Gwen’s husband. With searing insight and trademark wit, this Pulitzer Prize Finalist comedy is an unflinching examination of gender politics in the wake of 20th-century feminist ideals.
