The Heidi Chronicles
The Custom Made Theatre Co. moves to the Next Stage (Gough and Bush Streets) , with a new production of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning The Heidi Chronicles, which was called "fresh and funny, sometimes sad, and always recognizable" by the Bay Times during its last, sold-out production at Custom Made.
Heidi Holland, a successful art historian and essayist, finds that in her battle for independence and self-fulfillment she must survive womans collectives, power lunches, and the alienation of the ending century.
She is driven to find joy and satisfaction, but always on her terms, trying to maintain what makes her a person as others try to make her what they want her to be.
Luckily her friends: the unpredictable Susan, the witty Peter, and her charismatic on-again off-again lover Scoop, give humor and support as they too quest for success in their own way.
Personal and provocative, this play keeps its audience laughing while it celebrates the power of the individual.
