“In Homeric terms, Zinn has given birth to a story
that would make Penelope — one of the original stalwart women in world literature — very, very proud.”
— Telly Halkias, The Bennington Banner

BERKSHIRE THEATRE CRITICS ASSOCIATION
Audiences and critics love LUCY’S WEDDING!
ABOUT THE PLAY: Three generations of women in one family — and the groom and his brother — struggle for independence from the family matrix without sacrificing fealty. They are searching for their authentic selves within and without religion and sibling rivalries, are trying to shake off the wrong partners for the right reasons and think they need to choose between work and family. Hilarity, dreams, visions and decisions ensue.
“Zinn has an eye for movement and for pictures. Her direction brings things forward that another director might have missed.” — The Berkshire Edge

Randolyn said: “Directing this play allowed for revisions I hadn’t considered while writing it. The rehearsal process inspired new ideas and a fruitful collaboration with the actors. We learned that in the juxtaposition between the characters’ dreams and waking life how to negotiate the hilarity of their misunderstandings with the pathos of their circumstances.”
