Come relive the tumultuous times of an entire generation, during the College of the Canyons theatre department’s production of the Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning play “The Heidi Chronicles” by Wendy Wasserstein.

Chronicling the glory days of the feminist movement, “The Heidi Chronicles” follows the character of art historian Heidi Holland over a 25-year period beginning in the 1960s and ending in the “having-it-all” era of the late 1980s.

By focusing on the lives of Heidi and her group of closest friends, “The Heidi Chronicles” comically portrays the cast of characters’ range of collective experiences against the backdrop of the turbulent, but transformative, political and social changes taking place around them.

Originally published in 1988, “The Heidi Chronicles” went on to receive the Pulitzer Prize for drama and both the Tony and New York Drama Critics’ Circle awards for best play.

“Presenting “The Heidi Chronicles” offers a rare opportunity to look back at our not so distant struggles and consider how we did,” said Randee Trabitz, director of the production. “Although this play is certainly a chronicle of the emotional, political and social struggles of baby-boomer women in post-War America, the men portrayed here definitely have their hands full with the changes in society caused by the emergence of women.

“We invite the community to enjoy the sweet and humorous attempts of Heidi and her friends to help figure out what comes next in life, and hope that this production reminds us all that it was never easy.”

The College of the Canyons theatre department’s production of “The Heidi Chronicles” will run for one weekend, Wednesday, March 28, through Sunday April 1, in the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center (PAC) Black Box Theatre. Performances will be held at 8 p.m.  March 28-31, and 2 p.m. April 1.

General admission tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for COC students and senior citizens.

This production contains adult language and mature content. Parental discretion is advised for children under the age of 13. Children under the ages of five will not be admitted into the theater.

For more information about the COC production of “The Heidi Chronicles” or to purchase tickets please contact the PAC Box Office at (661) 362-5304 or visit www.CanyonsPAC.com.
