Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
"Funny, moving, and undeniably sexy. The heady blend of smart dialogue and characters... makes it a candidate to be the Angels in America of the Bush II decade." —San Francisco Chronicle

"Luminous... Kron marries vigorous political probing with pitch-perfect humor and heartache." -New Yorker

"In the Wake is a serious and engrossing examination of a recent period in our history. It is a big, ambitious work." -New York Observer

"Don't be surprised if Kron's resolute, maddening, emotionally distraught and very familiar characters are still rumbling around in your head like the after effects of an intense dream... An astute and challenging play that scrutinizes American history with laser-beam precision." -TimeOut New York

On Thanksgiving Day, after the controversial 2000 election, political junkie Ellen gathers with family and friends in her cramped New York City apartment. Soon after, she experience an unexpected passionate encounter, and discovers that ideas about America and our own selves are not as fixed as they once seemed.

Lisa Kron is the author of the book and lyrics to the musical Fun Home, and the plays Well and 2.5 Minute Ride, among others. She is a founding member of the award-winning theater group The Five Lesbian Brothers.
