Image from Well

Poor Lisa Kron. All she wants to do is put on a nice, orderly little play about her family, growing up, and how she got cured of her allergies. But her mother - who's watching the play in a housedress from her on stage living room - keeps interrupting, offering snacks to the audience, telling her own versions of Lisa's carefully constructed story, and causing chaos with the increasingly baffled cast.

A play for anyone who ever had a mother, Well is a hilarious, touching, and utterly original comedy about mothers and daughters, mind over body, social activism, and well, theatre itself. Lisa Kron recreates her Tony Award-nominated starring role, playing herself in a twistedly funny autobiographical show that landed on the "Top Ten" lists of The New York Times, Associated Press, The Advocate, and more. Well also stars veteran stage and screen actress, Emmy Award winner Mary Pat Gleason as Lisa's mother Ann Kron.

Approximate Running Time: 1 hour, 40 minutes; performed without an intermission
