Important Update

NCTC is postponing this production of Getting There by Dipika Guha. Your safety is of utmost importance and unfortunately the current Omicron surge in the Bay Area is disrupting our ability to assure that everyone at our theatre can be completely protected.

 


 

Kai and Julie came to Paris to see the sights, enjoy the food, and maybe learn something about themselves. After a falling out sends them on separate paths, Kai is pulled into an affair with a sophisticated older married couple, while Julie encounters an enigmatic woman deep in a war against herself. Twenty-four hours later, none of these five women are the same. Full of surprises and serendipity, Getting There is an intergenerational meditation on love, aging and solitude.
