It’s America in the 1950s. The patriarchy is on steroids. Christine’s “perfect” suburban family is its quintessential microcosm. The Smile of Her takes the audience on a sometimes funny, always deeply personal, journey of denial, neglect, abuse, understanding, and by the end maybe, possibly, hope.
Written and performed by Christine Lahti, with direction and dramaturgy by Robert H. Egan
Lighting by Patricia Nichols
