By Penelope Skinner, directed by Robin Witt

Linda Wilde is a titan – an award-winning executive at Swan Beauty Corporation with another brilliant new ad campaign up her sleeve. In the wake of her success, Linda’s husband, daughter, and a new generation of emerging leaders are following their dreams, but her immaculately curated work-life balance hasn’t prepared her for the battle for visibility in a world focused on everlasting youth. Olivier Award nominee Penelope Skinner’s Linda is a searingly funny portrait of a woman on the front lines of the fight for relevance.
