Opening Night is Friday, August 10, 2018
Talking With ... , a play written in 1982 by Jane Martin, is composed of eleven 10-minute monologues, each featuring a different woman who talks about her life. It includes the pieces: Fifteen Minutes, Scraps, Clear Glass Marbles, Audition, Rodeo, Twirler, Lamps, Handler, Dragons, French Fries, and Marks. It premiered at the Manhattan Theatre Club in New York in 1982 and has been performed around the world.
Among the actors will be Lamp-Lite favorites Linda Licht, Cynthia Hughes, Katrina York, Jody Ryan, Wanda Schenk, Nancy Yarborough, Lisa Norman, Jackie Vose, Roz Couch, Pat Harris, Tina Oswald, Lisa Lalumandier and newcomers Carla Redfield and Kearsten Clark.
The play deals with the personal ordeals of each of the female characters, many of which are very touching; a few are even intensely emotional. However, there is also the very comical, but even the funny ones have an underlying depth to them that gives a sensitive insight into each of the characters involved. The ladies cover a wide spectrum of life and age, from the fading rodeo star in Rodeo to the young aspiring actress in Audition.
Tickets will go on sale on July 23, 2018 at our three ticket outlets — Glass Castles, Kline's Wrap-It-Up, and the Nacogdoches Visitors Center — or by calling the Lamp-Lite answering service at (936) 564-8300. ONE WEEKEND ONLY.
