Everyone’s Fine With Virginia Woolf is a new play byKate Scelsa, in development by Obie-winning theater company Elevator Repair Service (ERS). Longtime ERS company member and acclaimed YA author Kate Scelsa has written the play for the company. In this queer, irreverent parody of Edward Albee’s iconic "Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf," no one is left unscathed by Martha's feminist ambitions. Rubbing alcohol will be consumed, imaginary pregnancies will be indulged, and gender constructs will be destroyed.
Kate Scelsa, in addition to performing in many ERS shows (including Gatz, The Sound and the Fury and The Select) is also a noted author. Her young adult novel "Fans of the Impossible Life" has been translated into nine languages and been heralded by critics and readers alike. Kate's writing for theater has been seen at the Bushwick Starr, Little Theatre, BAX, Five Myles, and the Henson Carriage House. Kate is a 2016-2017 New Georges Audrey Resident.
