By Wendy Wasserstein

Directed by Scot Reese

In this sprawling and heartfelt coming-of-age story, Heidi Holland grows up before our eyes. Starting out as a bright, idealistic college student of the 1960s, the world around her rapidly changes. With feminist guiding principles, she strives to build a fulfilling life and is forced to confront, through her work, friendship and relationships, the true cost of “having it all.”

From celebrated playwright Wendy Wasserstein, this endearingly funny play is a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner, newly resonant for a generation experiencing feminism through the lens of #MeToo and #TimesUp.

“Resonates today as strongly, and at times as painfully, as [it] did when Wendy Wasserstein’s most celebrated play stormed Broadway in 1989.” – The New York Times
