Beth Henley's Abundance at South Coast Rep through November 15

1860.  A stagecoach pulls into a station in the middle of the Wyoming Territory. Off step two mail-order brides, one innocent and wide-eyed, the other spunky and assertive.  For the next quarter of a century, they struggle with the incongruities of fate while clinging to their dreams in a fierce and funny story set in a wild west that would have daunted even Thelma and Louise. Originally produced by South Coast Repertory 25 years ago, this dark comedy by Pulitzer Prize winner Beth Henley (Crimes of the Heart) has found a new life, both here and in New York, where The New York Times said its revival “makes you realize how much you’ve missed a playwright’s voice.”
