Wasserstein's celebrated play, according to the Guthrie, "traces the coming of age of Heidi Holland from high school in the radical ʼ60s to her career as an art historian in the heartless ʼ80s. As Heidi determines her place in society and how to juggle success and failures in work, friendship, romance and motherhood, The Heidi Chronicles asks the ever-present question: Can women have it all?"

The Guthrie previously staged Wasserstein's Third.



The artistic team includes Clint Ramos (set and costume designer), Eric Southern (lighting designer), Scott W. Edwards (sound designer), Jo Holcomb (dramaturg), Lucinda Holshue (voice and dialect coach), Tree O'Halloran (stage manager), Michele Hossle (assistant stage manager) and Anya Kremenetsky (assistant director).
