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. A character comedy set in Philadelphia about struggling to maintain one’s authenticity while facing inevitable change. And it’s all in that 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.

This show enjoyed its World Premiere in the Hollywood Fringe in June 2022, before it headed to its natural habitat: Philly! At Plays and Players in July, then to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland for the month of August. Written and performed by Katierose Donohue Enriquez, Alumnus Groundlings Sunday Company. MFA Harvard, American Repertory Theater and Moscow Art Theatre. Directed by Corey Podell, co-creator of 2019 Edinburgh Festival standout “”Gutterplum”” (produced by Soho Theatre London).
