Dramatic Comedy


Unit Set/Multiple Settings

It's Thanksgiving of 2000 and the presidential election still has not been decided. Ellen insists that her friends and family don't understand how bad the situation really is. But no one—not her loving partner, Danny, nor the passionate Amy, nor the brutally pragmatic and world-weary Judy—can make Ellen see the blind spot at the center of her own politics and emotional life. A funny, passionate, and ultimately searing new play that illuminates assumptions that lie at the heart of the American character—and the blind spots that mask us from ourselves.
"Luminous…Kron marries vigorous political probing with pitch-perfect humor and heartache." —The New Yorker. "A powerful, engrossing and very funny examination of blind spots seen and missed…a big, ambitious work that attempts to define a political era through the personal stories of a group of people affected by it…IN THE WAKE is a serious and engrossing examination of a recent period in our history." —NY Observer. "Formidable…full of sharp, smart dialogue…its message rings all too true." —Associated Press. "The morning after seeing IN THE WAKE, don't be surprised if Lisa Kron's resolute, maddening, emotionally distraught and very familiar characters are still rumbling around in your head like the after effects of an intense dream…an astute and challenging play that scrutinizes American history with laser-beam precision." —Time Out NY.
