The Year of Magical Thinking begins previews March 6 and opens March 29 at the Booth Theatre and runs for 24 weeks. David Hare directs Redgrave in the work, which Didion adapted from her acclaimed memoir.
Press notes describe the play as such: "In The Year of Magical Thinking, Vanessa Redgrave relives an almost unfathomably shocking period in Joan Didion's life. Capturing the compassion, humor, and stark bewilderment of a fiercely intelligent woman whose world lurches suddenly from the ordinary to the unimaginable, The Year of Magical Thinking is a love letter to a child and a tribute to an extraordinary, unconventional marriage, told with raw candor and a brilliant storyteller's gift for the absurd."
