The Tony Award-winning Drama Book Shop is pleased to welcome playwright Kate Mulley and the original cast of her play The Tutor for a reading and signing of the play on Thursday October 6th at 6pm. The event is free to the public.
In The Tutor, Meredith is a Yale Law School graduate turned SAT tutor with a secret. In addition to coaching high school students in the ways of time management and sentence construction, she sells her used lingerie online. In a world where one wrong click can end your career or relationship, can Meredith continue to maintain her mystery or will her precarious fantasy turn on her? A timely new play about colliding worlds and what happens when one's virtual life meets reality. The Tutor premiered in the 2011 New York International Fringe Festival directed by Ben Gougeon and Doug Spagnola and has subsequently been translated into Mandarin and performed in Shanghai, directed by Xu Yang, most recently in August 2016.

Her plays have been developed and performed throughout the US and internationally at theaters including Shanghai Dramatic Arts Center, Dixon Place, the Flea, Northern Stage, Theatre503 and the Soho Theatre (London). Kate has been a Playwriting Fellow at Shanghai Theatre Academy, a Tennessee Williams Scholar at the Sewanee Writers Conference and a finalist for the Juilliard Playwriting Fellowship.
