Hard Choices


Hard Choices

Couples looking for fun, a father-daughter story, and a divorcee with nothing to lose.


Guest host Kirsten Vangsness presents three stories about hard choices. In Jac Jemc’s “Trivial Pursuit,” a husband and wife run the gamut of odd couples while trying to construct a social life. Jordan Klepper kills it. Renée Jessica Tan offers a thought-provoking response to racial stereotyping with the brilliant father-daughter story “Baghead,” performed by Karen Chee. And a recent divorcée has nothing to lose in her “Spanish Winter,” but what does she have to gain? Melora Hardin performs this strong piece by Jennifer Egan.
