Kristin Larson Directs Play at Iowa Stage Theatre
May 10, 2018
Kristin Larson, Theatre professor at Grand View, is directing the show Rapture, Blister, Burn by Gina Gionfriddo for Iowa Stage Theatre Company May 10 – May 20.
About the show:
After grad school, Catherine and Gwen chose polar opposite paths. Catherine built a career as a rockstar academic, while Gwen built a home with her husband and children. Decades later, unfulfilled in polar opposite ways, each woman covets the other's life, commencing a dangerous game of musical chairs—the prize being Gwen's husband. With searing insight and trademark wit, this comedy is an unflinching look at gender politics in the wake of 20th-century feminist ideals. "…intensely smart, immensely funny…RAPTURE more largely illuminates how hard it can be to forge both a satisfying career and a fulfilling personal life in an era that seems to demand superhuman achievement from everyone." —NY Times.
