My Salvation has A First Name: A Wienermobile Journey
[Performance Times: Thursday, May 12: 7:30, Saturday, May 14: 7:30pm, Sunday, May 15, 2:00pm]

Based on the true story of an insecure goody-goody who overcomes years of bullying and finds redemption and her true voice behind the windshield of the Wienermobile. Using music, video and photo footage from her life on the hot dog highway, comedian Robin Gelfenbien tells the story of her transformation from underdog to "one of the most notorious Wienermobile drivers of all time." (Time Out New York). "4 stars" (Time Out New York) "The highlight of next month's Fringe Festival" (New York Magazine) Written and performed by Robin Gelfenbien. (An excerpt from this show was part of our inaugural event, 'A WAM Welcome' )

How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less
[Performance Times: Thursday, May 12: 9:00pm, Saturday, May 14: 2:00pm]

Not a coming out story, but not not a coming out story, 'How To Be A Lesbian in 10 Days or Less' is a dynamic workshop led by teacher and motivational speaker Butchy McDyke that will help you become the "best lesbian you can be!" Writer and performer Leigh Hendrix links unique characters, personal story, and a Reba McEntire song in a mostly funny and sometimes earnest exploration of how you can learn to condently shout, "Iʼm a big ʻol dyke!"

Performing Therapy
[Performance Times: Friday, May 13, 7:30pm, Saturday, May 14, 3:30pm, Sunday, May 15, 3:30]

This one-woman, group-therapy comedy about depression is a sideways safari through loss, displacement, dementia, depression and the surprise healing nature of upstate New York.  A 'depressively experienced' actress turned therapist leads group therapy in an attempt to provide helpful advice and therapeutic modalities to other 'stressfully afflicted'. Art Therapy with Balloon Animals, Affirmations on Post-it notes and Primal Humming are some of the hopeful remedies. Written by Camilla Schade and Kira Lallas, and performed by Camilla Schade.

Stories of Hell and High Water
[Performance Times: Friday, May 13, 9pm, Saturday, May 14, 7:30pm]

Hell and High Water or When the Sky Falls is a fantasia on the theme of security in America.  It is a sharply satiric account of playwright Jamuna Yvette Sirker's experience surviving the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  The play follows Teacher Alice, a Latina school teacher's struggles through the abyss of an American apocalypse.  Stories from Hell and High Water is a one-woman, solo version of Ms. Sirker's full-length play.  In it, the astonishingly  talented Richarda Abrams, embodies Teacher Alice along with six residents from her flooded New Orleans neighborhood:  a nurse, a jazz singer, a photographer, an out of work actor and the spirit of a bag lady.   This quirky and surprisingly funny work holds resonance for anyone who knows loss, tragedy, or the illusive nature of "security".
