The Heidi Chronicles—Guthrie Theatre, Minneapolis, MN

Witty, insightful and poignant, The Heidi Chronicles traces the coming of age of Heidi Holland from high school in the radical ʼ60s to her career as an art historian in the heartless ʼ80s.  As Heidi determines her place in society and how to juggle success and failures in work, friendship, romance and motherhood, The Heidi Chronicles asks the ever-present question: Can women have it all?  Variety raved “not many plays manage Heidi’s feat of inducing almost continuous laughter while forcing the audience to examine its preconceptions.”
