Saving Kitty (2M, 2W)
Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater – Wellfleet, MA – July 15-July 28, 2012; New Jersey Repertory Company – Long Branch, NJ – July 25- August 25, 2013; Central Square Theater – Cambridge, MA – July 9-August 2, 2015
The battle lines are drawn and it’s all-out war when beautiful, fifty-something Kate Hartley, a wealthy, liberal, Manhattan atheist, launches a diabolical campaign to break up the engagement of her daughter Kitty to hunky Evangelical Christian Paul. Kate, divinely dizzy, supremely charming and highly intelligent, uses all her wiles to scuttle the relationship, alternating between saboteur and seductress.
The Nora Theater Production at Central Square Theater is so beautifully directed, acted and presented that you could mistake the play for Noel Coward.

Funniest show in town.

Saving Kitty is deliciously uncensored…wickedly funny.
- Broadway World, August 2015
Hilarious, must see play. Saving Kitty is extraordinary funny. Ultimately, Saving Kitty becomes more than a social commentary: it explores both cross-cultural prejudices and intimate emotional lives. Give yourself the gift of laughter and go.

Marisa Smith’s play is consistently funny and outrageous.
Saving Kitty is God of War meets Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner.
