Notes
Imaginary Friends was first produced at The Old Globe Theatre in San Diego in September 2002.
Plot
Novelist Mary McCarthy's notorious statement on the Dick Cavett Show calling playwright Lillian Hellman a liar exploded into one of the most famous of all literary feuds. This surreal farce portrays these two literary lionesses battling it out in hell. It chronicles a compelling story of two women shaped by their different but equally unsettled childhoods, their looks (one was a beauty, one was not) and the men in their lives while it brilliantly examines to great comic effect the concept of truth in fiction: Who can you believe? Interspersed throughout are witty songs that enable the ensemble to comment on the action. The acclaimed Broadway production starred famed actresses Swoosie Kurtz and Cherry Jones.
Premiere
