Gene Gore's Cheesecake and Demerol

Born during the Great Depression in the South, Gene would rather help her 
ophthalmologist father surgically remove eyeballs than attend debutant balls in taffeta. But she gives up nursing to marry a doctor and raise four children. Now she is pregnant yet again as her marriage is failing and then a medical crisis strikes. What choices are left to her?

"Attending Gene's show is like having strong coffee with a gracious, vivacious and very witty grandmother. Documentaries and fiction can't compare with this rare opportunityto experience history through the eyes of a woman who lived it all and tells it like it is. Plus, she's funny as hell!"
- San Francisco Fringe

Sundays at 3pm

julia jackson Children are forever

Monday, September 15 - 8pm

W H A T    C R I T I C S    A R E    S A Y I N G:
"In a city of standout solo performers, Julia Jackson can hang with any of them."
   - SF Theaterblog

" Writer-performer and comedian Julia Jackson's well acted and consistently funny autobiographical solo show details her and her female partner's attempt to adopt a newborn girl from a young African American mother in Florida."
    - SF Bay Guardian

   - SF Chronicle

W H A T   T H E   S H O W   I S   A B O U T:

Julia never bought a baby before. Okay, she's adopting, but the agency sure makes her feel like she's buying a baby. Couples competing in the free market of love. Bad ovaries but good credit? Step right up! Did you know some kids are discounted? A black baby--which is what Julia and her wife are seeking costs 1/2 of a white baby. Almost makes Julia and Amy want to run out and start a chapter of the Black Panthers - and Amy's white!

The one saving grace is that the waiting time for adopting a black child is six months instead of the two years it takes for a white baby. Oh wait, a gay couple? Make that a year. What's that? Julia is a recovering alcoholic? And she's insisting on including that info in their Dear Birth Mother letter? Make that anywhere between 2 years and . . . Hilary Clinton's second term

But only five days after signing the contract (non-refundable) at the adoption agency, a bomb drops - a birth mother has chosen Julia and Amy to raise her newborn baby daughter. And by the way, she's in labor. In Atlanta. Good news abounds.

The running time for the show is 90 minutes. There will be one intermission. No one under 16 will be admitted.

Gary Walker
"Green Eyes, Just Like You and Me"
"After watching an eye opening special on TV that mentions exorcisms, 10-year-old Gary asks his dad to explain the ritual to him.  His dad knows just what to do. He rents a copy of the 1973 classic movie, “The Exorcist” and has Gary watch it. Which Gary does.  Debilitated by the experience, will Gary ever overcome his crippling fear of satanic possessions and the world that's unseen?  Green Eyes Just Like You and Me shows how growing up on a dirt road in rural Michigan can give you everything you need. This family may have a cow named Bob and not a nickel to their name, but they're beyond worldly in their uncensored approach to tackling life's tough questions. Sometimes having less helps you accomplish more.”

Kenny Yun
“Mom Spilled Guts On My Tater Tots”
Please don't start mom! It's bad enough sitting in a smorgasbord, eating taters. Hope people aren't staring. How can I get her to stop? Oh no, I can't believe mom's going there!

Sharon Eberhardt
“Second-hand Muse”
Two dead rockstars, one crazy ex-girlfriend and muse, a stash of never-released tapes with their last, greatest songs.  A girl with a guitar and bartender with a dream will uncover rock history, or make some of their own.  

Lisa Marie Rollins
“Side Chick: This Ain’t no Harlequin Romance”
Lisa Marie didn’t plan on being a mistress, but somehow here she is, in a hotel in Tahoe with a married man while his wife is in a casino on mushrooms with friends. After 5 years of being single, a few attempts at internet dating, a stalker,the last 3 men she dates suddenly springing the news they are married on her, and some good old fashioned evangelical Christian familial shame, what’s a sex positive, Black Filipina feminist supposed to do?
