The Sisters Rosensweig
by Wendy Wasserstein
directed by Casey Stangl
May 5, 2018 - June 2, 2018


They’re each extraordinary in their own way. Sara, the successful banker. Pfeni, the globe-trotting journalist. And Gorgeous, the irrepressible radio host. Not bad for three sisters from Brooklyn in the early 1990s. When they gather in London for Sara’s 54th birthday, along with some of the men in their lives, the result is a witty, enthralling look at the quest for love, acceptance and self-fulfillment.

Wendy Wasserstein (October 18, 1950–January 30, 2006) was born in Brooklyn, New York. After graduating from Mount Holyoke College in 1971 and receiving an MFA from the Yale School of Drama in 1976, she followed in the footsteps of her grandfather, Simon Schliefer, who was a prominent Polish Jewish playwright. Her first production, Uncommon Women and Others, displayed her signature wry, comical style and was subsequently produced for television by PBS. Her plays include The Sisters Rosensweig, An American Daughter and Third. Her 1989 play, The Heidi Chronicles, won a Tony Award for Best Play and a Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Though lauded for its comedic merits, Wasserstein’s work explored a deeper issue: the complex politics of independent American women living in a society that values traditional roles and expectations. Wasserstein gave birth to a daughter, Lucy Jane, in 1998. In December 2005, she was hospitalized suffering from leukemia and passed away one month later at the age of 55.
