Mary & Karen take on questions of the essence of dressing up, both from the perspective of those enjoying the product and the producer…. In two monologues, they capture what it means to wear special clothes, and to create the experience of clothing. We are left with the special relationship of clothing laborer to fabric artist, and the world of expectations that divided the two.
Thank you – so lovely to see you in the audience!
Beautifully staged, emotionally engaging, I recommend.
And we thank you for coming to our Show!
I’m so glad I was able to attend Saturday night’s performance. This program is both educational and entertaining. Karen E. Griffin’s performance brought tears to my eyes in the most powerful piece I have seen at this year’s fringe. I won’t give away the twist to this story in case they bring this piece back again, but your mind will be blown. Bravo ladies. Bravo
Two masterful storytellers bring Kansas City fashion history to life through the sharing of their personal connections to it. A wonderful mix of story and art.
You are a master storyteller- your support is much appreciated!
