What's Wrong with a Mouse?

Vicki Dello Joio's solo dramedy, What's Wrong with a Mouse? is a story of transformative reconciliation that chronicles Vicki's journey as she works to heal a 20-year rift with her father, who had disowned her for being queer.

As Vicki cares for her father during his final days, she travels back in time with humor and heart, using her expertise as a brilliant physical and character actor to tell stories of their relationship.

Recent comments from audience members have included "riveting, I don't have words, I am so moved," "Your father came totally alive for meit was like he was in the room," "You have given me hope for healing what I thought was broken."

Vicki Dello Joio is a performer, master teacher and speaker. She is the author of The Way of Joy and a master teacher of Way of Joy Qigong. A founding member of the women' theater company, Common Threads, Vicki has been a member of Living Arts Playback Theater for over 15 years.

What's My Age Again?

In What's My Age Again? Merry Ross travels through the unknown terrain of peri-menopause, introducing  her grandmother, mother, and daughters through hilarious and poignant stories. With consummate skill and expertise, Merry walks the line between stand-up comedy and self-revelatory performance to explore this new life stage as she struggles to come to terms with the aging process. Comments for her performance included: "I can't remember when I've laughed so hard!" "As a woman approaching menopause, I felt like you were talking to me." "I wish you could have just kept goingI didn't want it to end."

Merry Ross is a drama therapist, teacher, and actor. Her last one woman show, Body Language was performed at the Marsh in San Francisco in 1992. A member of Living Arts Playback Theatre ensemble for nearly 20 years, Merry is also a faculty member at John F. Kennedy University. In her spare time, she loves to spend time with her family and friends and work out.
