ANAIS NIN: ONE OF HER LIVES

Genre: Drama, Lesbian+Gay
Wendy Beckett

This August witness the extraordinary stylings of Anais Nin's writing on the New York stage, performed by some of the finest award-winning actors in the city. Anais Nin was a poetic writer, a daring writer. Her innovative, evocative style encapsulated both feminism and the feminine. She came to be something of a cult figure and distinguished herself in literary circles. She wrote of female sexuality explicitly in her diaries and then published them. She was known for saying; "You have a right to experiment with your life. You will make mistakes. And they are right too" (AN).

Anaïs Nin: One of Her Lives follows Nin, a writer who, in the end, must choose her own path if she is to succeed in her literary ambition. Biographically, the play traces the complicated love triangle between Anais Nin, author, Henry Miller and his wife June. A literary ménage a trois is born that is like no other.
