The Year of Magical Thinking
The Players at Barker is proud to present Joan Didion’s The Year of Magical Thinking, a dramatization of her memoir of the sudden and unexpected of her husband and her daughter’s serious illness. Originally a one woman play, Director Pat Hawkridge has been given permission to explore the play with a company of 8 female-indentifying actors. Working with local filmmaker Katherine Reaves, Hawkridge has visualized both the singular and the collective experience of grief, loss, survival and hope that is both timeless and, at this moment in history, particularly timely.
