It's summer in Laguna Beach, on the eve of Independence Day, and Kate wonders how free she really is. Her husband Gordon, a famous artist, has abruptly disappeared. Is he unfaithful, crazy, dead, or all three - and should she bother to care? Why doesn't she feel fulfilled by what seems like an idyllic Southern California life? As the second wave of feminism crests, Kate, her daughters, her mom and her mother-in-law examine the meaning of love, family and independence. And when Gordon finally comes home, no one is prepared for what comes next.
The OC-centric New Play Festival presents Kate in a professional, rehearsed staged reading with with props, a lighting design, and scenic and thematic elements. A new work by OC playwright Robert Riemer, whose previous plays have twice earned LA WEEKLY Pick of the Week honors and also an Orange Curtain Review citation for Orange Countys Best Original Show of 2015.
