NYC-based, award-winning comedy actor, writer, and professionally trained clown Kate Owens’s similarly award-winning dark comedy Cooking with Kathryn has played throughout NY (Solocom, The PIT, The Tank, Dixon Place, The Shitshow, Personality Test) as well as at the PortFringe Festival (Critics Choice for Best Acting) and Los Angeles (Moving Arts Theatre), and tonight, August 17, it comes to The Tank's LadyFest for one night only. The play follow a down-home, liquored-up southern belle as she stumbles her way to her own birthday party with more wine in her veins than Jesus. Kathryn rewards her party guests with an easy-peasy egg-bake cooking demo… the problem is, she can’t even see straight, much less teach a cooking lesson.
Kate Owens has been developing this Amy Sedaris-inspired character for the past three years, and the PortFringe review team called Cooking with Kathryn “A no-fear comedy, this show is a must see,” as well as “Furious, gratuitous, and moving" and maybe "the best show...at PortFringe.” A digital series of Cooking with Kathryn is in post-production and will debut in October 2019.
