Cora's Holiday Hotpad by Sean Owens
EXIT Theatres writer/performer-in residence Sean Owens comes home for the Holidays, this time as wacky Cora Values, owner of the Gas & Gulp out on glorious I-19.
Cora is part Dame Edna, part Martha Stewart, and a total hoot in her latest show. Cora's Holiday Hotpad is an evening of spontaneous storytelling generated from the freshest possible ingredients-- whatever comes to your mind! Each night, Cora Values (working closely with the unbridled wit of EXIT's Sean Owens) will regale regulars and first-timers alike with the astounding antics of the Gas & Gulp's colorful clientele. Trade in traditional Christmas narratives for grease fires, ancient broth-makers, and mechanical rooftop piggies.
Audiences will choose for themselves that night's pageant theme to be performed by a motley band of truck-stop regulars, including musical madmen Jim Fourniadis and Don Seaver. Nightly features include "My Solstice with Burned-Up Walter" Cora's memories (jogged by you) of her attempts to perform pagan rituals with the remains of a dear friend and "Tales of the Quartermaster" spooky seasonal offerings from the Gas & Gulp's killer jukebox.
PLUS-- nightly craft projects and holiday drink specials! And as always, Cora will be raffling off delicious slices of pie at just FIVE CENTS per ticket! The season's festivities come pre-seasoned at Cora's Holiday Hotpad, so hunker down for a fuelside yuletide with the Queen of I-19 Miss Cora Values! SIX SHOWS ONLY!!
