Fefu and Her Friends is one of the most beloved plays of the late nine-time Obie Award-winning Cuban-American dramatist María Irene Fornés.

Directed by two-time Obie Award winner Lileana Blain-CruzFefu and Her Friends tells the story of a group of articulate, idiosyncratic women who gather in Fefu’s New England country house in 1935 to rehearse for a charity event. Their conversations evolve and through multiple perspectives and degrees of intimacy become dialogues and commentary on gender, sex, psychology and class.

TFANA’s production is the first Off-Broadway revival of Fefu and Her Friends since American Place Theatre’s 1978 production. Part I begins with the audience together. In Part II, the audience splits into four groups that move around the auditorium each experiencing the story in a different setting  in a different order. In Part III, the audience comes back together allowing the audience to see this fascinating gathering through multiple perspectives. 

"The actors perform the same thing four times so that we all have a chance to see them… An engaging kind of activity… There are moments of splendor.” Richard Eder, reviewing the original 1978 production, The New York Times
