The Year of Magical Thinking

Presented by Critical Stages Touring


The details will be different, but it will happen to you.

Green Room Award winners Jillian Murray and Laurence Strangio join forces once again to present an adaptation of Joan Didion’s remarkable memoir, The Year of Magical Thinking – a highly personal account of loss through the lens of hope.

A powerful and ultimately uplifting play about love and language, and the tension between what is said and what is not said.

Writer: Joan Didion

Director: Laurence Strangio

Lighting Design: Andy Turner

“Jillian Murray gives a superb performance – poised, vulnerable, intelligent, and full of the subtlest ironies”
