(BOSTON) – In conjunction with its current production of Can You Forgive Her?, the Huntington Theatre Company will host a number of special events and post-show conversations. Admission to onsite post-show events is free with a ticket to Can You Forgive Her?, available at, by phone at 617 266 0800, or in person at the BU Theatre (264 Huntington Avenue) and Calderwood Pavilion at the BCA (527 Tremont Street) box offices.

Can You Forgive Her? takes place on Halloween night, and its central character Miranda is desperate for a way out. She’s up to her neck in debt, she might be falling for the man who pays her bills, and now her date has threatened to kill her. A charismatic stranger offers shelter and a drink; where will the night take them? With her trademark dark humor, Gina Gionfriddo presents complicated characters wrestling with love, money, and their past in this sharp, contemporary comedy directed by Huntington Artistic Director Peter DuBois.
