The 14/48 Partner Projects, in collaboration with Ghost Light Theatricals, will be presenting the world premiere of Cate Wiley's brand new play “The Liberation” at the Ballard Underground November 2 - 17, 2018. The Salon hosted a staged reading of Cate’s script in March and couldn’t be more thrilled to see it hit the stage.
Set against the background of terrorist attacks in Paris, “The Liberation” asks how far women have come from the sexual double standards of the past. After a scandal forces her out of her position as a history professor at a prestigious university, Marianne moves to Paris to reinvent herself. When a bright young assistant and the son of her lover from graduate school each appear, full of hope, on Marianne's doorstep, she's forced to wrestle with who she is and how she can move forward.
