The Year of Magical Thinking

Host Frank Stasio will talk about the play with director Mark DeChiazza, actress Ellen McLaughlin and psychiatrist Peter Perault, a consultant on the play.

When Joan Didion suddenly lost her husband in 2003, she chronicled the experience in her memoir "The Year of Magical Thinking." Before the book was even published, her daughter, Quintana, died. In Didion's adapted play, "The Year of Magcial Thinking," she takes the audience on a journey through her sometimes surreal grieving process. Chapel Hill’s PlayMakers Repertory Company is staging the production from April 27th -May 1st.
