About Choice

When successful journalist Zipporah Zunder takes on an assignment to investigate a new and polarizing social phenomenon, she is unprepared for how deeply this story will impact her life, transforming her understanding of herself, her past, and her future. Funny, smart, and emotional, this unpredictable new play looks at all the layers that live inside a single choice.

Approximate run time: 2 hours and 15 minutes, including one 10-minute intermission.

“This play has been alive in my imagination for a while now, and the Huntington seems to me the perfect place to have it realized for the first time. I am thrilled and grateful for this opportunity.”— Winnie Holzman
