The final night of The Kitchen Riots Festival is the performance of a new one-act play entitled Call Me She. Imagine you’re running… 15 minutes later you wake up in an ambulance and three weeks have gone by, everyone you know has been looking for you, but you don’t remember a thing. Based on a true story, Call Me She abstracts the story of a missing woman found floating face down off of Staten Island and thrust back into normal life. Haunted by the Nowhere, who was She before? Who is She now? And can She begin again?
