Just one hour by train from Penn Station, The New Jersey Repertory Company is proud to present the premiere of “Saving Kitty”, a provocative new comedy written by Marisa Smith, July 25 through August 25, 2013.
What happens when a daughter brings home a young man to meet her ultra-liberal Upper East Side parents for the first time and he turns out to be the antithesis of everything they stand for? “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner” takes on a whole new meaning in this play starring Sarah Nealis as Kitty, Christian Pedersen as her fiancée-to-be, John FitzGibbon as her unflappable father, and Judith Hawking as her mother, a former soap-opera actress who guards her home like a cornered lioness. Directed by Evan Bergman , “Saving Kitty” won Best Play from Portland Stages’ Clauder competition in 2010 and premiered at the Wellfleet Actors Harbor Theater in July 2012.
