Talking With comes to West Coast Players Theatre April 18 through May 4.
CLEARWATER – Jane Martin’s Talking With comes to West Coast Players Theatre April 18 through May 4.
“Talkin With” was the 1992 winner of the Theatre Critics Association Award for Best Regional Play.
It is a collection of extraordinary monologues written by the "mysteriously pseudonymous" Jane Martin. The 11 monologues create an "evening of idiosyncratic characters who amuse, move, and frighten, always speaking from their souls." They range from a "baton twirler who has found God through twirling and a fundamentalist snake handler. There is an ex-rodeo rider crowded out of the life she has cherished by a man in three-piece suits who wants her to dress up ‘like Mini Damn Mouse in a tutu.’ Add in an actress willing to go to any length to get a job and an old woman whose dream is to live in McDonald's.
Performances are Fridays and Saturdays, 8 p.m.; and Sundays, 2 p.m. Tickets are $17. Call 437-2363 or visit www.wcplayers.org.
West Coast Players Theatre is at 21905 U.S. 19 N., Clearwater.
