Anaïs Nin

Set in the 1930’s in Paris when many artists converged on France in the hope of finding an aesthetic life and to escape the confines of their own morals and culture, this play traces the love triangle of Anais Nin, Henry Miller and his wife June. We witness the development of the author Nin who must navigate a difficult path if she is to succeed in her literary ambition. Anaïs Nin is a writer who sought emotional intimacy with her readers yet paradoxically created mystery.

This play has been produced many times the most recent production in Tokyo 2015.

ANAÏS NIN was last directed by Wendy in 2006 at Theatre Row in NYC.
