Wendy Wasserstein

17 October 1950 to 30 January 2006

American playwright Wasserstein offered a witty, insightful voice for a generation of women, at once liberated and yet frustrated by family politics and societal injustice. Her first big Broadway hit was The Heidi Chronicles (1988), establishing a reputation further enhanced by The Sisters Rosensweig (1992) and her latest Third (2005).
