"A play probing the very tricky question of what makes us happy in life"
– CHICAGO TRIBUNE

Jan 17 – Feb 22, 2015 in Goodman's Albert Theatre

Around Approximately 2 hours with one intermission

The Pulitzer Prize finalist, hailed as “intensely smart, immensely funny” by The New York Times, makes its Chicago debut in a sharp new production.

After graduate school, Catherine and Gwen chose opposite paths. Catherine built a high-profile career while her best friend Gwen raised a family. Twenty years later – and unfulfilled in opposite ways – each woman envies the other’s achievements and questions her own life choices. Sparks fly and the age-old question arises: What do women really want?

Chicago’s Kimberly Senior helms this hugely entertaining comedy, fresh off directing Broadway’s Pulitzer Prize-winning smash Disgraced.
