Written and Performed by Katie Northlich
Directed by Jerry Miller
November 6th & 11th, 2014
A variety show that asks, ‘What does it all mean?’ As Katie inhabits the bodies and minds of her vivid and arresting fictional characters, we are led into their worlds–free of shame–as they explore the depths of the human psyche and experience. With dramatic and humorous vignettes, Katie Northlich asks us to consider if the simultaneously beautiful and grotesque chaos of life is a product of fate or free will. And, in the end, does it matter either way?
