Matthew Lombardo's Tea at Five is an intimate look at Katharine Hepburn at home in her Fenwick estate in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. The first act takes place in September 1938. With Broadway appearances and her first Oscar, but her professional future in doubt, she contemplates her childhood in Hartford and her start in show business. The second act takes audiences to February 1983, when the now-legendary star reflects on the triumphs of her career and her great love affair with Spencer Tracy. Kate Mulgrew reprises her role from the acclaimed Hartford Stage production. John Tillinger directs.
