"Feminism" is one of those words that is loaded with connotations, both positive and negative. So you'd expect that a play about three generations of women discussing feminism would be rife with strong opinions and uncomfortable silences. Therefore it's truly remarkable that the writer of "Rapture, Blister, Burn," Gina Gionfriddo, managed to make such a fiery situation humorous, thought-provoking and uplifting.

Gina Gionfriddo's Pulitzer Prize-nominated play "Rapture, Blister, Burn" is playing at Salt Lake Acting Company this month. Centered around feminism, growing old and the evolution of gender roles, this show unabashedly addresses these uncomfortable issues in an equally comedic and thought-provoking manner.

Gina Gionfriddo's Rapture, Blister, Burn is an oddity as dramatic literature in that its digressions—about the history of feminism, horror films as political commentary, and similar subjects—where the actual drama is abandoned are far more interesting than the actual drama. A moderate-length essay on those subjects by the author would probably be quite interesting, but wedged into a thin, banal piece about two women's envy of each other's lives, it makes for a frustrating evening.

Surely a lively debated followed the six blind men's first encounter with an elephant. But it's still no match to the humorous and precise observations from the four women in "Rapture, Blister, Burn."
Avery, Gwen, Catherine, and Alice not only view the hot button topic of feminism through knowing eyes, but each of their attitudes clash from their respective life stations.
