IN THE WAKE New York Premiere By LISA KRON is directed by LEIGH SILVERMAN. It's Thanksgiving of 2000 and the presidential election still has not been decided. Ellen (Marin Ireland) 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.
