Creating Claire
By Joe DiPietro

From the Tony Award-winning writer of “Memphis,” the popular “I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change,” and the beloved “Over the River and Through the Woods,” comes a very different story by Joe DiPietro.

Science and Faith collide, in this provocative new play about Claire, a docent at a natural history museum. She and her husband are raising an autistic daughter who is now sixteen years old. In seeking answers to help connect with her daughter, Claire develops a newfound spirituality. Her burgeoning spirituality has a big bang effect on her job, her friendships, her marriage, and her autistic daughter, and not all of the effects seem positive.

The play poses the question “What kind of victory is it when Claire can say that she has gained her faith, but may lose her family, her job, and best friend in the process?” The play becomes a powerful supernova of ideas, decisions, and consequences that may have audiences discussing the story long after the performance ends.
 

“Creating Claire soberly considers the missing link between faith and science... [it] focuses more on Claire’s growing faith and its effect upon her marriage than upon hotly debating the issues.” – Variety.

“Awfully well done...” – The New York Times.

“...engrossing and provocative...” – CurtainUp.
