A signature work of feminist theatre by a giant of the avant-garde. Set in the 1930s, a group of eight women gather at the country home of their brilliant and eccentric friend, Fefu. As multiple conflicts unfold between the old friends, the women struggle to define who they are and what it means to be a woman in a patriarchal society. Though written in the 1970s, FEFU AND HER FRIENDS raises questions and anxieties around gender and identity that endure today.


María Irene Fornés has been called the greatest and least-known dramatist of our time. Signature Theatre devoted its 1999–2000 season to her work. She’s written over 40 “spare, poetic, and emotionally forceful works”; won nine OBIE awards; and her epic What of the Night? was a finalist for the 1990 Pulitzer Prize. JoAnne Akalaitis, Edward Albee Caryl Churchill, Migdalia Cruz, John Guare, Tony Kushner, Eduardo Machado, Caridad Svich, Paula Vogel are among the artists that have credited her as an inspiration and influence.
