THE STORY: It’s 1995. Monica Lewinsky is twenty-two and an intern at the White House. She has a crush on the president of the United States.
A year later, Huma Abedin is twenty and an intern at the White House. She has a plan to break the glass ceiling with the first lady of the United States, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
You think you know the story. After all, you did hear it from the media, the news, the tabloids, but you might come to realize you don’t know it at all. This acerbically funny play is about mothers and daughters, ambitious politicians who are devoted wives, and, yes, the men…but they don’t have a say in how this story ends. Monica and Hillary have never met, never spoken to each other; but what if, decades after the fact, they did meet?
“…intense, discomfiting, revelatory…[WHEN MONICA MET HILLARY is] riveting theater presented with clarity and thought-provoking emotional impact…Miller’s artistic vision is powerful, making for an experience worth sharing and contemplating.” —Miami Herald.
“…[a] fresh take on a turning point in our politics and the victims of its tabloid churn.” —Time Out Miami.
