Wretch Like Me - 10th Anniversary Performance
Ten years ago, in July of 2009, David Templeton gave the first performances of his acclaimed one-man-show "Wretch Like Me" at the Glaser Center in Santa Rosa. Now, to celebrate the show's 10th anniversary, he's bringing it back home to the stage it was born on as a fundraiser for the Unitarian Universalist Congregation, Santa Rosa.
The outrageous true story of a former teenage fundamentalist - and how he was saved from being saved
Written and performed by David Templeton.
Directed by Sherri Lee Miller
This is a 7 p.m. show, and the lobby, box office and concessions stand will be open shortly after 6:15. The Glaser Center has asked me (David Templeton) to be be on hand to meet folks and chat for a while during the pre-show, so do come early, have a glass of something and a snack, and get ready for the show. This version is running about 75 minutes, with no intermission. Afterwards, there will be an "intermission" (more snacks) followed by a very lively panel discussion featuring a number of local folks who've been vital in the history of "Wretch Like Me" (including original producers Dan Zastrow and Julia Lander, Edinburgh director Sheri Lee Miller, my wife Susan Panttaja, and Rev. Chris Bell). The discussion will be moderated by KRSH and KDFC's Robin Pressman. It'll be a nice way to bring this chapter to a close and honor some of the folks who have played a major role in the story of "Wretch Like Me."

yourself and about life, then you are indeed one miserable
reprobate." Will Durst, Political Satirist

Entertaining." S.F. Examiner
