It’s 1984 and Josephine Rosen has a dead-end job, lives in a suburb of Boston with her mother, and has settled into the uncomfortable comfort of being single at 37. When flirtation with an old classmate and a new friendship at work give her hope for change, she begins taking tentative steps toward a new life. NICE GIRL is a play about the tragedy and joy of figuring out who you are and letting go of who you were supposed to be.
NICE GIRL runs January 24 – March 11, 2018 in Raven’s East Theatre, 6157 N. Clark St. (at Granville) in Chicago. For more information visit raventheatre.com.
