A co-production of 92Y and Sundance Institute Theatre Program, the evening begins at 8:15 PM. Leslie Kritzer and Mary Beth Peil star under the direction of Lisa Peterson.

The Madwoman in the Volvo was written by Sandra Tsing Loh.

Sandra Tsing Loh is the author of the best-selling New York Times notable book "Mother on Fire," inspired by her hit solo show of the same name, which ran seven months at 24th Street Theatre. During that time, she was named one of the 50 most influential comedians by Variety. Her other solo shows include Aliens in America and Bad Sex With Bud Kemp (both Off-Broadway at Second Stage Theatre), Sugar Plum Fairy (Geffen Playhouse, Seattle Rep) and I Worry (Kennedy Center, Actor’s Theatre of Louisville). Her short story, "My Father’s Chinese Wives," won a Pushcart Prize in 1996, and is also featured in the Norton Anthology of Modern Literature. Currently, her weekly segment "The Loh Life" is heard on KPCC, and her syndicated daily radio science minute "The Loh Down" on Science is heard weekly by four million people. A Pushcart Prize winner, MacDowell Fellow and three-time National Magazine Award nominee, her new book, "The Madwoman in the Volvo: My Year of Raging Hormones," based on her Best American Essay 2012 in the Atlantic Monthly on menopause, was published by W.W. Norton in May 2014.
