A character comedy set in Philadelphia about struggling to maintain one’s authenticity while facing inevitable change. A solo show filled with hope and profanity. Bad enough Kathleen Burke’s neighborhood has gentrified around her, when she gets the surprise of her life at her 40th birthday party it triggers her own high stakes battle between “woo-woo” healing and working class attitude. And it’s all in a thick, distinctive Northeast Philly dialect people are going nuts for right now. If you love MARE OF EASTTOWN, it’s like that. But funny and with, like, zero murders.
A World Premiere! Headed to Philadelphia and London in July, then to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland this August, then to NYC in the Fall as an official selection of the United Solo Fest on 42nd street, theater row, off Broadway. YEAHBABY!
Written and performed by Katierose Donohue Enriquez, Alumnus Groundlings Sunday Company. MFA Harvard, American Repertory Theater and Moscow Art Theatre. Directed by Corey Podell.
