On Friday and Saturday, September 11 and 12, I’ll be performing my one-woman show, THE PORCUPINE WOMAN, at Colby College’s Strider Theatre, on the Mayflower Hill campus in Waterville, Maine. Showtime is 7:30. Tickets are free, but you do have to get a ticket from the box office before the show, and these are distributed on a first-come/first served basis.
I’ll also be doing the show at this fall’s SOUTHERN COMFORT Gender Conference, in Atlanta, GA, on Thursday night, September 24. The show is free to convention-goers that evening. The running time is a little over an hour.
The Porcupine Woman is a series of interconnected stories and songs, performed and written and sung by me, featuring the electric harp as well as the grand piano. The show was originally commisioned by the Richard Hugo House in 2008 as part of the “My Avatar” event I performed with performance poet Krista Bell and novelist Vikram Chandra. The show has been expanded to a full evening, and is being directed and staged by the chair of Colby’s Theatre and Dance department, Lynne Connor.
So if you’re in the central Maine area–or if you’ll be in Atlanta later this month–I hope you’ll check it out.
