Hot off the heels of sellout smash “Pride and Prejudice,” 4th Wall Theatre Company is starting 2019 with another Houston premiere, “Rapture, Blister, Burn” by Gina Gionfriddo. This 2013 Pulitzer Prize Finalist is a comedic but unflinching look at gender politics in the wake of fourth-wave feminism. 


“As a piece that’s part history lesson, part gender prognostication, and part laugh-out-loud comedy, we think there’s something here for everyone,” says Kim Tobin-Lehl, Director and 4th Wall Co-Artistic Director. “It’s a whip-smart story that asks its audience to wrestle with a variety of perspectives, hopefully leaving us all smiling and a little wiser in the end.” 


The play follows two successful women on radically opposing trajectories. One has built a career as a rockstar academic while the other has built a loving home; each, however, longs for the road not taken. In this dangerous game of musical chairs, audiences will enjoy Gionfriddo’s searing insight and trademark wit on full display.


4th Wall Theatre’s production of “Rapture, Blister, Burn” will run February 28 – March 23, 2019, at Studio 101, Spring Street Studios, 1824 Spring Street, Houston, TX 77007. Shows run at 7:30pm on Thursdays through Saturdays and at 3:00pm on Sundays. Tickets run from $17 to $53, with a Pay-What-You-Can performance Monday, March 18. There will be cast talkbacks following the Sunday matinees on March 10 and March 17. The play contains adult language and themes.

The S. S. American is sailing between New York and England with a comically colorful assemblage of passengers: Reno Sweeney, a popular nightclub singer and former evangelist, her pal Billy Crocker, a lovelorn Wall Street broker who has come aboard to try to win the favor of his beloved Hope Harcourt (who is engaged to another passenger, Sir Evelyn Oakleigh), and a second-rate conman named Moonface Martin, aka “Public Enemy #13.” Song, dance, and farcical antics ensue as Reno and Moonface try to help Billy win the love of his life.
