Press - ​​​The Madwoman in the Volvo


THE MADWOMAN IN THE VOLVO
by Sandra Tsing Loh
directed by Lisa Peterson
January 3-25, 2016

Julianne Argyros Stage

In ancient times, tribal women went alone to caves during menopause. Today, the 50 million menopausal women in America turn to cheery self-help books. As for Loh and her friends, they are determined not to go quietly into their sixth decade but instead opt for a desert festival of debauchery and half-nude stoners! “Burning Man” is only one hilarious side trip on this bumper car ride through mid-life “madness.” Based on the NPR commentator’s enormously popular memoir that Booklist calls “hilarious, comforting and enlightening.”
