The Department of Theatre & Dance presents The Heidi Chronicles, a series of interrelated scenes tracing the coming of age of Heidi Holland, a successful art historian, as she tries to find her bearings in a rapidly changing world; written by Wendy Wasserstein and directed by Alan Brincks. 

Gradually distancing herself from her friends, Heidi watches them move from the idealism and political radicalism of their college years through militant feminism and, eventually, back to the materialism that they had sought to reject in the first place. Heidi’s own path to maturity involves an affair with the glib, arrogant Scoop Rosenbaum, a womanizing lawyer/publisher who eventually marries for money and position; a deeper but even more troubling relationship with a charming, witty young pediatrician, Peter Patrone, who turns out to be gay; and increasingly disturbing contacts with the other women, now much changed, who were a part of her childhood and college years. Eventually Heidi comes to accept the fact that liberation can be achieved only if one is true to oneself, with goals that come out of need rather than circumstance.
