Kate Stoddard murdered Charles Goodrich in 1873--after he told her they weren't really married and had her evicted from his Brooklyn brownstone in a blizzard. Kate's struggles to maintain her sanity and her identity, both before and after she shot her one true love three times in the head, are the subject of this play, which moves backwards and forwards through time and invokes a poetry of madness.
