About this show

The Golden State tells the story of Gertrude Hopper who, in her dilapidated Southern California mansion, rules over her adult children and illegal servants with an iron fist. With a fortune in her bra and a maternal instinct warped by the profit motive, Gertrude plans to marry off her son and farm out her daughter's womb to a wealthy widow. Her plans run aground, however, as her children make a final, desperate bid for love and independence in this twenty-first century reinvention of Molière's classic comedy The Miser.
