About The Year of Magical Thinking

THE YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING
By Joan Didion, based on her memoir 
New England Premiere 

Joan Didion’s best-selling memoir recounts an almost unfathomable period in her life as she grappled with her husband’s sudden death and her daughter’s illness. This stage adaptation captures the compassion, humor and bewilderment of a fiercely intelligent woman as her world suddenly lurches from the ordinary to the unimaginable. Filled with raw candor, this “unmissable theatre” (Variety) is a love letter to a child and a tribute to an extraordinary, unconventional marriage, all told by a brilliant storyteller with a gift for the absurd.
