THE YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING
by Joan Didion
A meditation on love, loss, grief and healing
A TOP 100 BOOK OF THE 21st CENTURY – The Guardian
Acclaimed author Joan Didion lived a charmed and affluent life, with a loving husband and a daughter who recently got married – until her husband died at the dinner table a month before their 40th anniversary, while their daughter lay in an induced coma in the hospital. Based on the autobiographical book by the same name, this play is a painfully honest and painstakingly remembered examination of Didion’s first year of grief, told with vulnerability and passion, offering a path through the unimaginable.
