The Year of Magical Thinking is a one woman show, starring Leslie Greene and is an account of the year following the death of the author’s husband John Gregory Dunne (1932–2003). The play recounts Didion’s experiences of grief after Dunne’s 2003 death as well as the hospitalization and death of their daughter. Days before his death, their daughter Quintana Roo Dunne Michael was hospitalized in New York with pneumonia which developed into septic shock; she was still unconscious when her father died. During 2004 Quintana was again hospitalized after she fell and hit her head disembarking from a plane in Malibu. She had returned to Malibu, her childhood home, after learning of her father’s death.

The play opened on Broadway in 2007 starring Vanessa Redgrave and has been performed throughout the world.
