WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Playwright Alison Crane returns to Fringe NYC with Coyote Katie's Return , another darkly comic tale of Oklahomans and the people who love them. Everyone loves a taxidermist. And what's not to love about Roy, a hairy, awkward, possibly psychotic taxidermist living on the fringes of Oklahoma City? Despite his commitment to solitude, he finds an unlikely connection with Ruby, a psychiatric nurse with a checkered romantic past. Their awkward attempt a romance is threatened when Roy's past staggers onto his doorstep, dragging the truth behind a 30-year-old urban legend along for the ride. This truth leads us into the highly-sanitized hands of Dr. Holbrook, a psychiatrist who wants to seize this discovery to make a difference in the lives of many. A recently deceased cat, a taxidermy menagerie and a wasted Dorito casserole, all present their own complications in this quirky love story of bestial proportions.
