Shamless Self-Promotion

The bigger show I am promoting is Best in Show, the 5 year anniversary show for Better Said Than Done. The show is Saturday night, May 28th at 6:30 p.m. at Jammin' Java in Vienna, Virginia. Come early - you can get dinner and drinks there, too. I'm one of the 10 finalists and I know at least two of the others are promoting the show heavily, so I really need to have my own supporters there to have a chance.

This will be a new story. What's it about? Well, the country is a bit tilted, and everything loose falls into California. Or maybe it has more to do with the trauma of starting high school and why one should not be a smart ass when filling out forms. (I do actually know what it's about, but those are the funnier things.) I have a little over a week and a half to make it have an actual ending.

Anyway, go and get tickets now because the show might sell out. And see if I can pull it together.

If you absolutely can't make that, I am also performing at the Washington Folk Festival. Sunday June 5th from 4:30 to 5 p.m. I'll be on the Storytelling Stage at Glen Echo Park performing a set called "Calculating Women." It's a collection of stories about real, imaginary, and complex women facing the world with wit, cleverness, and a touch of mathematics. The venue may be in darkest Maryland, but it's free and there's lots of other fun stuff at the festival.
