Joan Didion's The White Album
Time Out says
Joan Didion’s seminal essay comes to life in an inventive new theatrical work
In many ways, now is the perfect time to revisit Joan Didion’s 1979 essay about the end of an era – as an American counter-culture started to crush itself. That sort of cultural disintegration feels all too familiar to us now, which is why director and artist Lars Jan has adapted the work for the stage. He’s created a striking visual production which uses an onstage audience of people in their twenties, reflecting the many people Didion encountered when she was living in a large Hollywood house during what felt like the cusp of a great revolution. Obie-winning actor Mia Barron delivers the text as the action unfolds behind and around her.
