Comic-actor-writer Kate Berlant will return to the New York stage next month with her new one-woman comedy Kate.
Directed by Bo Burnham, the eight-week engagement will begin previews at the Connelly Theater August 20 prior to an official opening September 7.
Berlant, who will explore the events of her life that have brought her to the current moment, said in a statement, "All my previous work has been a pale shadow, a humiliation, an impotent suggestion always gesturing toward, yet never quite arriving… until now. I can’t wait to welcome you into my home, which is the theatre. Although I haven’t been home in a long time, it feels good to be back, and I’m so grateful they kept the lights on for me. Although it is forbidden to take your shoes off in my home, I hope you will still allow yourself to shed a layer—to become vulnerable and receptive to the possibility of transformation."
Berlant appeared in Quentin Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Boots Riley's Sorry to Bother You, and the upcoming Warner Bros film Don’t Worry Darling. She has also been seen in Search Party, Transparent, I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson, and the forthcoming A League of Their Own on Amazon Prime. She has performed at festivals across the globe, including a sold-out run at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Montreal Just for Laughs Festival, and The New York Comedy Festival.
Performances will continue through October 8. Tickets are on sale at oKateShow.net.
