Actress and storyteller Ann Randolph has quite the life story to tell, from living in an Appalachian mental institution to working with Mel Brooks and Ann Bancroft in an off-Broadway play.
Randolph will take an audience through her journey, “Inappropriate in All the Right Ways,” complete with TED Talk-style pointers about how to live life like she has during her one-woman show Wednesday, March 2 at Whidbey Island Center for the Arts.
“People often come up to me after my autobiographical solo shows and share their own stories with me, and I thought why not do it in the theater,” Randolph said, in a news release. “We all want to feel that our story matters and I wanted to create a structure and format for the audience to have a chance to speak their story.”
After hearing about Randolph’s travails, the audience is invited to share their own life stories, both the highs and the lows.
She is an award-winning playwright and performer whose multi-character, solo show “Squeeze Box” was produced by Brooks and Bancroft and became an acclaimed off-Broadway hit. Her most recent solo production, “Loveland,” won her an award for her performance from the San Francisco Examiner.
Tickets for “Inappropriate in All the Right Ways” cost $21.50 for adults and $19.50 for seniors and students, and are available online at https://tickets.wicaonline.com/public or at the WICA box office.
