Comic drama a searing script about politics
February 7, 2019

CAMP Rehoboth will present “In the Wake,” by Broadway playwright Lisa Kron, at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Feb. 22 and 23, and at 2 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 24, at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center.

The play is a funny, passionate, and ultimately searing script about politics that is actually about love and loss and risk and relationships.

Kron's works are humorous and poignant looks at life by someone who has often described herself as an outsider. This particular script takes place at Thanksgiving of 2000 when the presidential election still has not been decided. The main character, Ellen, deals with the political turmoil as well as upheaval in her personal life.

Director Kay Cummings is a successful writer, actor, and director in her own right. She has played leading roles off-Broadway, in national tours, stock, repertory theater, television soaps, series and commercials. She appeared on stage at CAMP Rehoboth in “Stop Kiss” and as Dr. Kitty Cochran in ”Last Summer at Bluefish Cove.” 

Cummings loves the intimate performing space at the CAMP Rehoboth Community Center. “It brings out the creativity of the director, designers, and cast,” she said.

Cummings is also is impressed with the local talent pool, which brought her actors from Clear Space Theatre, the Freeman Stage, and all over the Sussex County area. The production features several local actors, including Charlie Keenan, Gwen Osborne, Tanaye Purnell, Kelly Sheridan, Patricia Stiles, Darcy Vollero and Ashlie Workman.
