  • Awards: Drama Desk Award: Solo Performance
  • Preview Date: March 6, 2007  Opening Date: March 29, 2007  

Capturing the compassion, humor and bewilderment of a fiercely intelligent woman whose world lurches suddenly from the ordinary to the unimaginable, this 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.

Didion takes strength from retelling the story of her own deprivation. Far from signaling the end of her year of magical thinking, the play turns out to be an extension of it. - The New Yorker
