Rapture, Blister, Burn by Gina Gionfriddo is sharply-funny (if you like that sarcastic, smart kinda humor…which I do). It’s about Catherine, who has gone off and become a Neil-DeGrasse-Tyson-style academic of women’s studies. But she comes home to the small New England town where she grew up to take care of her ailing mother. Worried that she’s made the wrong decisions in her life by pursuing her career instead of a family, she reconnects with her ex-boyfriend, Don.

However, Don is married to Gwen — Catherine’s former best friend. Gwen is also questioning her life decisions and wonders what it would be like if she continued her education.  During a summer seminar taught by Catherine, the two women hatch a plot to switch lives.

Crazy right? You should come see it.

Here’s what we’ve done leading up to tonight:
