“CALL ME” comes to the Midtown International Theatre Festival!

12 Jun

I’m DELIGHTED to report that my 20ish minute solo show, “CALL ME,” has been accepted into the Midtown International Theatre Festival!

The Midtown is the second of three festivals that has accepted this piece. It’s the little show that could! “CALL ME” premiered in the Plus One Solo Show Festival in October 2010, it’s going up in the Midtown in July (7/18, 7/21 and 7/30) and it’s hitting Manhattan Theatre Source’s Estrogenius Festival in October 2011. Consider checking it out, won’t you?

THE SKINNY:
A freshly single woman in her 30s awkwardly attempts to navigate the tech-heavy dating scene. Call her old-fashioned or old school, this girl longs for human interaction. And if that means having a threesome with a suburban couple from Jersey, so be it.

“CALL ME” is the first half of a 45-minute evening called “CALL ME/SWAMP GIRL.” My fellow solo show performer Deb Castellano performs the second 20-minute piece, “SWAMP GIRL, ” in which she uses karaoke and pole dancing to overcome some significant losses in her life. She is strong, sexy and ready to kick ass.

My solo show, “CALL ME,” goes up on October 10 & 11!

5 Sep

I’m delighted to report that my solo show, “CALL ME,” has been accepted into the Plus 1 Solo Show Festival. It will go up on Sunday, October 10 and Monday, October 11, 2010 at 8 pm at the Bridge Theatre @ Shetler Studios (244 West 54th Street, 12th Floor). There will be three other 20-minute solo pieces and a singer/songwriter in between. It will be a lovely evening indeed.

A brief synopsis of my piece:

In a sea of texters and Facebook stalkers, one woman challenges her potential suitors to unplug.

A freshly single woman in her 30s awkwardly attempts to navigate the tech-heavy dating scene. Although she’s only been off the market a few years, she finds that the rules of social interaction have changed. Gone are the days of a fella asking for a girl’s number and then mustering up the courage to call her. Call her old-fashioned or old school, this girl longs for actual human interaction. And if that means having a threesome with a suburban couple from Jersey, so be it.

More details to come!

Taters and rugelach,
Katherine Williams
