Well - Public Summary

Writer/Performer Lisa Kron -- whose acclaimed solo show 2.5 MINUTE RIDE was a roller coaster ride through the Kron family album -- returns to The Public Theater with the world premiere of her new play WELL. And this time her mother takes center stage…literally. In WELL, Ms. Kron sets out to explore the dynamics of health, family and community with the story of her mother's extraordinary ability to heal a changing neighborhood, despite her inability to heal herself. In this "solo show with other people in it," Kron asks the provocative question: Are we responsible for our own illnesses? But the answers she gets are much more complicated than she bargained for when the play spins dangerously out of control into riotously funny and unexpected territory.
