In the Wake by Lisa Kron, directed by Kay Cummings
CAMP Rehoboth will produce In the Wake, by Broadway playwright Lisa Kron. The play is a funny, passionate, and ultimately searing script that illuminates assumptions that lie at the heart of the American character—the blind spots that mask us from ourselves, and how the past sows the seeds of the present.
Kron's works are humorous and poignant looks at life by someone who has often described herself as an outsider. Her experiences as a Jewish woman living in a predominantly Christian Midwestern city or life as a lesbian working in traditional theatre provide rich material for her plays. Her reflections from the outside looking in are insightful but not bitter. Ben Brantley of the New York Times says of her: “…there is never condescension in her humor. It is simply a crucial part of her navigational equipment in finding her way through life's absurd course of non sequiturs.”
Performances are February 22, 23 at 8pm and Feb 24 at 2pm. Tickets are $25.
CAMP Rehoboth Community Center, 37 Baltimore Ave. Rehoboth Beach.
