About The Show
It’s hard to catch the wind, the freedom of the highway, and the psychedelic insanity that was 1974. Ellen Kaye is tackling all three in her new show. Seven years after the Summer of Love, six years after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, four years after the Kent State killings, two years after Watergate, two weeks after Nixon resigns and Ford takes office her adventure begins.
Hitchhiking across a fracturing America, with Ted Bundy arriving on the scene in Washington State, the US pulling out of Vietnam, Shirley Chisolm running for President, The Black Panthers, The Weather Underground, The Symbionese Liberation Army with Patty Hearst, and Angela Davis make it an interesting moment to be on the road, seeing the country for the first time. It’s a quintessential tale of some badass days and nights.
