WORDS FIRST is the premier solo performance event in San Francisco. The first Wednesday of every month, WORDS FIRST invites the finest solo artist, comics, and storytellers to the CounterPULSE stage. Solo performance is a unique brand of theater: one person, one stage. All pieces are written and performed by the solo artists themselves!
With performances by:
MIA PASCHAL ~ “The Slaughterhouse Trapeze” (An excerpt)
A runaway trapeze artist tries to escape the slaughterhouse in this solo show about sex and death.
ERICKA LUTZ ~ “A Widow’s To-Do List”
Who knew that Love and Death came with a side order of So-Much-to-Do?
DEIRDRE KENNEDY ~ “Not THAT Irish”
She’s American. No, she’s English. Ok, she’s Irish — but not that Irish. Deirdre Kennedy explains how a London-born child of the Sixties learns to distance herself from green beer, shamrocks, and terrorism.
