Au Revoir is about a surgical misadventure placing an influential woman in a situation where she has to make a difficult decision and say good bye while trying to find out what happened. This is a situation that occurs every day and one we hope to never be in. It can happen to anyone rich or poor, Ivy League educated or uneducated. We all feel the pain of loss in the same way.

Why submit to a festival like this? I submitted because Elena Zazanis who facilitates the Inkubator at Art House encouraged me to do so.
Susan Fitzgerald has spent 39 years working as a Registered Nurse. Old women often take up pastels or painting still life pictures, but she has no artistic ability at all. After endless hours of boredom and telling stories to her many cats, she decided to write them down. It seemed more cost effective than paying a therapist. A friend brought her to Art House’s Inkubator for writers and with encouragement she has used her experience to bring authentic medical drama to the stage.
Susan’s first play Kitchen Table Conversations was presented at Stage Fest in Jersey City in 2013.
PERFORMANCE: August 17th at 7:00 PM
