Kill Your Darlings


BAD DATES, OR… opens in just a few days!

Mark your calendars to come see the show, but in the meantime, enjoy this nugget of cut dialogue from the show!

“I am so sure, so positive that we are perfect for each other. We make the same kinds of jokes, we watch the same TV shows, and we love the same movies.

And we like the same things about our favorite things. We both think that the first shot of a movie is the most important, and it should in some way speak to the final shot. We both think that Chicago is the greatest city in the world. It seems like we have the same politics, based on his ‘likes’ and ‘retweets’. And we both think that Harrison Ford is the prime example of all that is wonderful about movie stars. I know all of this just from his online presence, just think about what we’ll bond over when we meet IRL.”

“Bad Dates…” with the Nerdologues and Sappho’s Salon relaunch

So, for weeks, months, and maybe even a few plural years, I’ve been talking about writing a one woman show about Harrison Ford. And it’s finally happening. I’m working on Bad Dates; or, What Killed That Monkey in Indiana Jones Only Makes Me Stronger, developing material and writing the thing. A few weeks ago, I was able to workshop the beginning and the end of the show as a story with The Nerdologues at their Your Stories event. They turn all of their events into podcasts, so you can listen to the excerpt HERE (tune in at 42 minutes). Stay tuned for a first reading of the show sometime in April.

AND in very exciting news, starting in April, I will be co-curating a new performance salon at Chicago’s  Women and Children First bookstore featuring expressions of queerness, gender, and feminism. Sappho’s Salon will occur monthly with both open performances and a curated showcase. On April 11, we are having a kick off party where I’ll be performing alongside some of Chicago’s finest feminist performers. Join us!

Lots of performances coming up, many more to come!
