Fefu and Her Friends - 2019 - Off-Broadway

Starting at $70

Fefu and Her Friends, one of the most beloved and discussed plays of the late Cuban-American dramatist Maria Irene Fornes, tells the story of a group of intelligent, outgoing young women who have so internalized male views of their sex that they lash out indirectly in mysterious ways. A classic of both feminist and environmental theater, Fefu splits its audience into groups that move around to different locations in the theater. The women's fascinatingly enigmatic gathering at a New England country house in 1935 is seen through multiple perspectives and degrees of intimacy.



TFANA's production is the first Off-Broadway revival of Fefu and Her Friends since American Place Theatre's 1978 production.
