Margaret Fitzgerald// An All American Girl
The trials and tribulations of what life was like for a former life size model for child size dolls in the ever competitive Midwest circuit. Moments include the time my parents used Oprah as my sex ed teacher, my strongly worded yet educating letter to Tyra Banks and my youth dressed as a Victorian child bride!
Becky Abrams// Santa’s Girlfriend
It’s Halloween, and Becky’s dressing up in the hottest costume she can come up with: Santa’s Girlfriend. This storytelling show covers the beginnings of a 33 year old’s sexual odyssey, featuring Fairuza Balk, an Italian astrophysicist, and Lord of the Rings memorabilia. Come for the tricks, stay for the treats!
Grant Lancaster// One Room Sleep One Night
“With no phone, and four of his five senses slowly failing him, follow Grant Lancaster on a week-long, stranger than fiction journey home, as he contracts an extremely rare and unheard of neurological disease while on a solo motorcycle trip through the outer reaches of Northern Thailand. Experience the powerful resilience of comedy in this true-to-life story about solitude, karaoke, and just getting home.”
