The Year Of Magical Thinking

THE YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING is coming to The Other Palace for a strictly limited run this summer.

In this dramatic adaptation of her award-winning, bestselling memoir, which The New York Times called “an indelible portrait of loss and grief… a haunting portrait of a four-decade-long marriage“, Joan Didion transforms the story of the sudden and unexpected loss of her husband and their only daughter into a stunning and powerful one-woman play.

Starring Linda Purl and directed by Jenny Sullivan. Linda performed the role in its West Coast premiere and has since performed the role in 13 different venues across the United States.
