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.
