    Synopsis: 

    It’s Halloween night, and Miranda is desperate for a way out. She’s drowning in debt, may be falling for the man who pays her bills, and is on the run from her date who has threatened to kill her. When Graham and his fiancé Tanya offer her a safe haven, a door opens, for all of them… but is the promise of a better life a treat or a trick? Two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist Gina Gionfriddo (The Vineyard’s AFTER ASHLEY; BECKY SHAW; RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN) brings her unforgettable dark humor to this timely, ferociously funny story of lost souls grappling with emotional and financial dependence, and the costs of the American Dream.

    Can You Forgive Her?

    Jesse Green

    May 23, 2017:

    Feisty women trying to jump class are so 19th century; I’m looking at you, Jane Eyre. And so 20th century, too: Have you met Sister Carrie?

    For the playwright Gina Gionfriddo, such characters are all too 21st century as well. Many of her plays, including the Pulitzer Prize finalists “Becky Shaw” and “Rapture, Blister, Burn,” feature heroines trying to escape the social immobility that locks them into dreary lives. In the smart but awkward “Can You Forgive Her?,” which opened on Tuesday at the Vineyard Theater, she introduces us to two such women, Tanya and Miranda, each using tools largely unavailable to Jane and Carrie to dislodge herself from the financial permafrost.
