20th Century Blues

Congratulations to the Cast and Crew for a fabulous show!

20th Century Blues 

by Susan Miller

Directed by Karen Dervin & Jennifer Shea

Produced by Hugh Thompson

The Burlington Players present OBIE Award-Winning Playwright Susan Miller’s “20th Century Blues”. 

A reunion. An argument. A Ted Talk. Emotional mutiny. And a bond that connects four women who meet once a year for a photo shoot, chronicling their changing (and aging) selves as they navigate through love, careers, children, and major world events. “20th Century Blues” is the sharply funny and evocative new play by Susan Miller that questions our place in the world and with one another.

  “Though it touches on themes of friendship and art-making, this is mostly a comedy about aging. Ms. Miller…hopes to demonstrate that when women turn 60 they don’t suddenly become sexless, charmless, invisible.” —NY Times.

   “20TH CENTURY BLUES…breaks the mold when it comes to the female ensemble dramedy…With poignant but still laugh-out-loud social commentary on the process of aging in America, razor sharp one-liners and thought-provoking questions about older generations adjusting to the younger world, 20TH CENTURY BLUES takes a tried and true comedic premise and adds a uniquely modern twist.” —BroadwayWorld.com.

  Performances are: November 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23 at 8 pm, November 10 at 2 pm and November 17 at 7 pm
