PSU Theater Arts Presents Maria Irene Fornes' FEFU AND HER FRIENDS
Thursday, March 3, 2011 - 7:30pm

Written by the pioneering avant-garde dramatist Maria Irene Fornes, this Obie award-winning play explores the lives of eight complicated, privileged women who gather together in Fefu's country New England home on a spring day in the 1930's. Hallucinogenic, mysterious, thought-provoking, and one of our most beloved off-Broadway plays, "Fefu and Her Friends" is a provocative, feminist exploration of the expectations, inconsistencies, and double standards that even the most aristocratic women endured - and continue to endure. This production will mark the West Coast premiere of Fornes' one-set version.

"Fornes is America's truest poet of the theater." - Erika Munk, "Village Voice"

"One of the most powerful plays written about the mysteries and shared hallucinations of the female experience." - "The Los Angeles Weekly"
