The Year of Magical Thinking

100611-1Spinning Tree Theatre and The Living Room present
a new play by Joan Didion based on her memoir,
starring Peggy Friesen directed by Michael Grayman.

Spinning Tree Theatre and The Living Room proudly present the Kansas City premiere of Joan Didion’s dramatic adaptation of her award-winning, bestselling memoir. This intimate account of how a highly cerebral, articulate woman endures an inestimable loss confronts mortality head-on. In chronicling the year which begins with the sudden death of her husband and continues with the hope of survival for their only daughter, Didion chronicles her own evolution. The first theatrical production of The Year of Magical Thinking opened on Broadway in 2007 starring Vanessa Redgrave. Our production stars one of Kansas City’s most celebrated actors, Peggy Friesen, in a tour de force, once-in-a-lifetime performance.
