"Insides OUT!" is the emotionally charged and hilarious story of one young persons journey from her high school and college years through her introduction to the working world. Abuse of alcohol, drugs, food, and sex, mark a journey into and ultimately out of self-loathing. The performance seeks to depict the lifelong struggle for integration of the many aspects of the self, and the continued voyage towards peace of mind.
Katie Rubin began her career as a writer/performer at Amherst College with her first original piece, PartyBoobyTrap. Her second play, Avoiding Less Blue, was produced through the 2000 New York Fringe Festival. Insides OUT! is her third work for the stage and was her first solo show. Ms. Rubins most recent writing credits include the completion of two plays commissioned by the Health Education Department at UC Davis.
"The Punchline" - This one-woman-show takes an irreverent look at what stops people from pursuing their dreams. Dives inside the wild playground of the mind and ask the big questions: What's life all about? Why am I here? Where are you hiding the chocolate? Take a journey with Alicia into the quirky world of standup comedians, hungry-funny monsters who live in the belly, Jewish grandmothers, and wacky gurus who all think they know the answers. This poignant and bittersweet comedy speaks to the heart of what matters.
Alicia has been writing and performing standup comedy for over 10 years, appearing with comedians such as Will Franken, Arj Barker, Eugene Mirman, and Amy Stiller. She's appeared at The Punchline, Cobb's Comedy Club, and The Improv. Alicia studied filmmaking at Hampshire College. She subsequently studied Method Acting for four years with Rob Reece and scriptwriting for two years with Will Dunne. Several years ago, she started a circus called "The Latest Show on Earth" with Ben Turner and toured the country.
