Author Talk: Sandra Tsing Loh and her Madwomen of the West

Writers Bloc with Sandra Tsing Loh, “Madwomen of the West” | June 6

  • This event has passed.

Tuesday, June 6, 2023 — 7:30 pm

What happens when four old friends—Boomer feminists—get together for a reunion for brunch in Brentwood? Imagined by Sandra Tsing Loh, brunch becomes a lot dicier, and we’d say more fraught and more fun, than your run of the mill Sunday meet-up of longtime friends. Sandra Tsing Loh is a playwright, radio host, actor, and author. She’s an expert on the world of menopausal women- as you might know from her landmark book, Madwoman in the Volvo. It follows then that her new play, Madwomen of the West, would feature four women of a certain age—and these terrific actors play the four women: Caroline Aaron (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel), Marilu Henner (Taxi) ,Melanie Mayron (ThirtysomethingJane the Virgin), and JoBeth Williams (The Big ChillPoltergeist). These women let loose: besides the smoking, the drinking, and a bowl of gummies, there’s bewilderment and real exploration about life, men, ageing, and dealing with children whom we may or may not understand. It’s really funny, and deeply provocative about women trying to figure it all out.

Writers Bloc will host Sandra and her dream team of a cast to talk about what draws them to their characters, what messages the play delivers, and why we need to talk about this. The play runs through June 25 at the Odyssey Theater in Los Angeles.

NOTE: Masks will be required for this program.
