"The Heidi Chronicles"

My sister shared her season tickets to City Theater Company with me again. "The Heidi Chronicles" by Wendy Wasserstein, would not have been high on my list of plays-I-am-anxious-to-see, but I really liked it! The main thrust of the story is about a young woman coming of age between 1965 and 1985. The author has cleverly woven the changing ideas of feminism into a story spiked with humor. Perhaps part of my enjoyment was based on having lived through this era, although I had to decipher the reasons I couldn't recall some of the references. Oh yes, we were "expats", living overseas. That was an entirely different world.
