(Boston, MA) The Huntington Theatre Company presents the world premiere of Can You Forgive Her? by two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Gina Gionfriddo (Becky Shaw and Rapture, Blister, Burn) and directed by Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois (A Little Night Music and Smart People). Performances begin Friday, March 25 and continue through April 24, 2016 at the South End / Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA.
It’s Halloween night, and Miranda (Meredith Forlenza) is desperate for a way out. She’s up to her neck in debt, she might be falling for the man who pays her bills, and now her date has threatened to kill her. A charismatic stranger offers shelter and a drink; where will the night take them? With her trademark dark humor, two-time Pulitzer finalist Gina Gionfriddo presents complicated characters wrestling with love, money, and their past in this sharp contemporary comedy.
Approximate run time: 1 hours and 40 minutes without intermission.
