9 Ounces: A One-Woman Show by Anastacia Tolbert

December 19, 2015 at 7:00 PM


9 Ounces, written by Anastacia Tolbert, stars Alice, Luna & Saraphina. Using the audience as mirror, epiphany and diary, three narratives crochet themselves around evolving frames. This unkempt, de-ribbon-ed braid dangling crooked parts is not to be missed.

9 Ounces first premiered at The Project Room.

General admission shows run 12/17, and 12/18 and feature a Q&A following the performance. $12

Special VIP performance on 12/19 will feature a special Q&A with characters Alice, Luna, and Saraphina, as well as complimentary wine and snacks. $20
