Synopsis: Well is a funny and touching comedy from playwright Lisa Kron who gave us the Tony-award winning musical Fun Home. "This play is not about my mother and me," begins the character of Lisa. But of course, it is. It’s about mothers and daughters, mind over body, social activism and theatre itself. Lisa, the onstage playwright, attempts a memory play about her force-of-nature mother, Ann, who though constantly ill manages to heal a changing community. Kron asks the provocative question: "Do we create our own illness?" The answers are much more complicated than they bargained for as the play spins dangerously out of control into riotously funny and unexpected territory.
"This glorious and funny new play opens doors of insight and emotion that no other play in New York is opening. I fell in love with WELL." -- Ben Brantley, The New York Times
