This is Lori's second show with Gadfly after a turn as a clown and other assorted ensemble in this past fall's Othello, but this time she puts on a more serious face as she plays several different characters who help the lead in her journey. It's hard to talk about this play without giving too much away, but with a burning bush and tents gradually popping up, the script did present a few challenges--not to mention the unique task that always comes with one-person shows. The company is so proud of and excited for this work, and knows you're going to love it.
The show was written by Tacoma playwright J.C. Pankratz, who devised the show after seeing an image in her mind of a woman tending to a burning bush. Desire to learn and create a show around this woman, Pankratz used the one-woman format so other characters wouldn't distract from this woman's journey and significance. Her efforts were incredibly successful, but don't take out word for it. Come check out Honest to God opening Friday the 13th, then playing the 15th, 19th, and 21st at Nimbus Theatre as part of Gadfly's Final Frontier Festival. Tickets are available here. Don't miss your chance to see this provocative, magical work.
