A Reading/Performance of the new solo play,
THE BOOT, written and performed by Margery Kreitman
with direction and dramaturgy by Jayne Wenger
Margery Kreitman is an award winning playwright who will have you laughing about how to go from "We to I" in her solo play, The Boot. In this dark comedy, Margery plays multiple characters telling the story about the breakup of a long term relationship. Loss, grief and betrayal are portrayed in a soul-searching yet humorous way. And in the end, she reclaims her single identity as a lesbian of a certain age.
We invite you to the reading and if you so desire, please stay afterwards for an informal discussion with the playwright to share your thoughts, impressions and questions. Get in on the ground level of how a theater piece goes from page to stage in all its revisions and re-visionings. Be part of the fun witnessing and giving feedback to Margery as she creates a brand new play. Thank you for supporting live performance.
