BOTANIC GARDEN, a funny, poignant drama, is about a fifty-something widow, Kate Goodman, who is desperate to get out of a first date. She turns to the one person who can help: her deceased husband, Jake. The play intersects the present with “flashbacks” from their 30-plus years of marriage. BOTANIC GARDEN is a fresh, engaging portrait of the intricacies of a long-term relationship. Using intimate direct language to summon urgent human complexities, BOTANIC GARDEN not only examines the difficulties of losing a life partner, but challenges the conventional notion of our need to move on.
Featuring: Kelli Strickland (Regional: Raven, Lifeline, Rivendell, New Colony, Women’s Theatre Alliance, Bailiwick) and Noah Simon (Regional: A Red Orchid, Lakeside Shakespeare, Raven, 16th Street, Remy Bumppo, Peninsula Players).
