THE HEIDI CHRONICLES

BY WENDY WASSERSTEIN

7 JUNE – 8 JULY

HC Hero WS Tile“I covet my independence”

A coming-of-age story that charts the changing role of women in society and the evolution of the ‘baby boomers’ who rebelled in the 1960s, became the ‘me-generation’ of the 1970s and embraced ‘greed is good’ in the 1980s..

Across three decades and four cities, Heidi and her friends – male and female, gay and straight – search for political, professional and personal fulfilment as youthful idealism sours, careers surge, relationships break down and biological clocks start ticking.

Inspired by Kennedy, disillusioned by Nixon and corrupted by Reagan, in the end they come to realize that the fight for what you believe can only take you so far and that liberation lies in being true to yourself.

Wendy Wasserstein’s funny, touching, insightful elegy for her own lost generation and their often fraught relationship with feminism broke new ground in the presentation of women’s stories on stage. +PRESS +PICS
