Wendy Wasserstein`s The Heidi Chronicles presents us with Heidi`s awakening into self-identity. The Heidi Chronicles unfolds a twenty-five year journey that Heidi undergoes in search of herself. The trek begins with her awakening into the feminist`s sisterhood that has been taken for granted in America since the 1970s. Heidi perceives the feminist vision that women belong to one family. However, in the 1980s, Heidi observes the changes of her fellow feminists who have become selfish materialists; her high school friend Susan is the quintessential example of greed. Naively, Heidi has trusted them in the feminists` communal spirit. Throughout her plays Wasserstein depicts the archetypal women as an upper middle class professional living affluently. The Heidi Chronicles is no exception. Heidi becomes disillusioned, saddened, and is left feeling stranded. Heidi makes the matter a public issue. At the Miss Crane School Alumnae lunch, Heidi delivers a speech--"Women, Where Are We Going"? Through this diatribe she fictionalizes her day and defines her generation of women as being empty and unhappy, saying that in the beginning, she believed they were all in the feminist movement together--it is a "cry of despair." Noticeably, Wasserstein now includes Heidi`s male friends in order to demonstrate her progressive thinking into attaining self-identity. Wasserstein has Peter say that male friends are also family members. Heidi who has planned to move from New York decides to stay and says that she won`t forget Peter as a member of her family. Her world vision enlarges and heightens at this point. The playwright brings Heidi`s search for self-identity to its end with the adoption of her daughter Judy. As an idealist who has retained the polity that women must not waste their lives, and that women must continue improving their potential, Heidi wishes that Judy won`t allow any man to make her think she is worthless. Heidi will continue working for women`s equal rights and recognitions, while including men in her agenda. Herein lies the hope for the future.
