The Heidi Chronicles
This comic play charts the 1965 through 1980s experiences of a feminist art historian and her friends and lovers. We follow Heidi Holland through the decline and fall of '60-isms--from campaigning for Eugene McCarthy to challenging male bias to consciousness-raising. Along the way we meet her "family." There's Scoop Rosenbaum, Heidi's on and off lover, who switches political ideologies and girlfriends and becomes the founder of Boomer, an influential lifestyle magazine. There's handsome Peter Patrone, Heidi's witty high school comrade--a successful pediatrician who retains his idealism and remains her soulmate. And there are Heidi's women friends, the sisters who share her ups and downs and her determination to march into the 21st century. This edition includes photographs from the theatre set.
