Herland
By Grace McLeod
Directed by Jonathan L. Green

Jean is in her seventies, recently divorced, and ready to shake things up. She recruits her two best friends since forever and an intern, a precocious college-bound girl from down the street, to design a bold plan for the next chapter of their lives. They plot the future together inside Jean’s garage, formerly the domain of a locally famous Bruce Springsteen cover band fronted by their ex-husbands. After a lifetime of following other people’s rules, they are faced with the exhilarating prospect of making their own. HERLAND is a play about women growing up, growing old, and living life to the beat of Bruce Springsteen’s greatest hits.
