How have women benefitted from the Women’s Movement? The Heidi Chronicles, the 1989 Pulitzer Prize winning play by Wendy Wasserstein asks this and other questions by tracing the life of a female art historian. Wasserstein’s main character, Heidi Holland, comes of age during the pivotal years of the Women’s Movement. Through her relationships with both men and women, we watch her struggle to determine what women have really gained and at what cost. The play has a wonderful mixture of probing intellectual questions and old fashion theatrical humor. Come see what the New York Daily News called, “not just a funny play, but a wise one.”
