The Year of Magical Thinking: Stage Adaptation of Joan Didion’s Book

Joan Didion, a perennial front-runner for the “Best Living American Writer” title, found a powerful and poignant way to talk about grief in her acclaimed memoir, The Year of Magical Thinking. Now the award-winning book is an equally acclaimed play, which The New York Times called “an indelible portrait of loss and grief … a haunting portrait of a four-decade-long marriage.” This 90-minute one-woman performance recounts the fallout from the sudden death of the author’s husband, novelist John Gregory Dunne, shortly before the couple’s 40th wedding anniversary. That devastating period also saw the death of the couple’s daughter, Quintana, from a battery of acute and chronic illnesses. See Didion’s story of crippling grief and her ultimate, inspiring journey to acceptance when The Year of Magical Thinking comes to Falls Theatre at ACT in Seattle.
