I'll Get You Back Again

Available in Library

A bittersweet comedy with music set in Berkeley. Struggling stand-up comedian Chloe is sitting in for her dead father as the bassist for his seminal psychedelic rock band. As rehearsals progress, Chloe finds herself navigating increasingly delicate emotional terrain as old conflicts flare up and old flirtations reignite.

By turns comic and tragic, scathing and tender, the play is a meditation on what we inherit from the sixties; the joys and frustrations of collaboration; and the search for transcendence in art and comedy.
