This is my second non-improvised solo show. It’s been filtering and swimming around in my head, in various guises, for a few years now. But with a break between jobs a window suddenly arrived. Clouds parted. Birds chirped.
A performance spot at Mezrab, everyone’s favorite storytelling nest and clubhouse became available. And before I knew it, before too long, I had enlisted the aid of improviser and actress Joana Ponder for some input.
Very shortly thereafter the show had undergone a name change, stories were swapped in and out, a throughline had been found and strengthened, and now, it’s become a thing.
So far, it’s had a one-off showing at Mezrab, but more is in the works. See below for great pics by the always-wonderful Robin Straaijer.
