ABOUT THE PERFORMANCES / PERFORMERS:


"FORTUNATE DAUGHTER." Some folks are born... made to raise the (rainbow) flag! Written performed by Thao P. Nguyen. Performing 8/1 & 8/22.

THAO P. NGUYEN is has been writing and performing solo shows since she joined the Solo Performance Workshop in 2007. She also co-produces two monthly solo performance series in San Francisco: "Words First" at CounterPULSE and "City Solo" at Off-Market Theater.



"THE GIRL FROM CALIFORNIA." The improbable true story of two plus-sized Americans who find love -- and each other -- on the highway outside of Bakersfield. Written & performed by Michael McCarrin. Performing 8/22.

MICHAEL MCCARRIN manages the website for Small Desk Press, and works days at Pottery Barn, where he converts the paragraphs that describe the products in their catalog into the bulleted lists that describe those products on their website. His writings are available for free online at www.potterybarn.com.



"LADY PARTS." It isn't the show you think it is. Mostly it's about mom-thighs, hair removal on public transportation and reconstructive surgery after taking a bullet. There's really only a little bit of vagina in this show -- because contrary to public assumption - a woman is more than the sum of her 'lady' parts. Written & performed by Martha Rynberg. Performing 8/15.

MARTHA RYNBERG is the original director of the acclaimed "W. Kamau Bell Curve", a facilitator of the Solo Performance Workshop since 2008, and a prolific performance artist gone bananas for the solo genre.



"THEME PARK."  A world-weary amusement park detective and his young protege probe a terrible ride accident  in a magic-tastical place where both the bodies and the park's darkest secrets refuse to stay buried.  Written & performed David Jacobson.  Performing 8/1 and 8/22.  

DAVID JACOBSON is a humorist/journalist, free-range ant farmer and Splenda addict.  He got sucked into the solo performance vortex three years ago by Charlie Varon at The Marsh and peer pressure from the Wool Street Gang.
