Saturday, May 19 2018 • 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm • Kum & Go Theater

The Iowa Stage Theater Co.‘s first season at The Kum & Go Theater with Gina Gionfriddo’s Rapture, Blister, Burn.

Rapture, Blister, Burn

After grad school, Catherine and Gwen chose polar opposite paths. Catherine built a career as a rockstar academic, while Gwen built a home with her husband and children. Decades later, unfulfilled in polar opposite ways, each woman covets the other’s life, commencing a dangerous game of musical chairs—the prize being Gwen’s husband. With searing insight and trademark wit, this comedy is an unflinching look at gender politics in the wake of 20th-century feminist ideals.  “…intensely smart, immensely funny…RAPTURE more largely illuminates how hard it can be to forge both a satisfying career and a fulfilling personal life in an era that seems to demand superhuman achievement from everyone.” —NY Times.


Performances on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights in the Kum & Go Theater.

May 10 – May 20, 2018
