The show is now up! Spoonie Theatre’s production of It Started with an Allergy can now be viewed on YouTube. Go and see this virtual one-woman show about endometriosis and watch a wrestling match with a uterus!
My one-woman play It Started with an Allergy will stream in an online, multi-media production, starting on January 15, 2022! Produced by Spoonie Theatre, starring Annette Devitt, and directed by Anna Ashkenazie Bush, It Started with an Allergy is my painfully funny solo show about the 8+ years it took before I was diagnosed withContinue reading “It Started with an Allergy on Jan. 15, 2022”
“I was right. Ever since I was 12, maybe, I’ve been right. This isn’t normal. Something is wrong with me.”
My play It Started With an Allergy, which I last performed at the Edmonton Fringe in 2015, is getting a production via Zoom! Spoonie Theatre in Ocean, NY, USA, will be doing the show this fall. Stay tuned…
The last three weeks…not so much. I’ve cancelled going to shows, going to a board meeting (some secretary I’ve been), and had to force myself to go to work, because I need to pay rent. Spending sleepless nights lying perfectly still, yet feeling my abdomen being wrung like a soaked towel. My gynecologist assured meContinue reading “Today is a good day in Endometriosis Awareness Month”
Okay, it’s also about sex and drinking (when I could still do that) in Scotland, and cats, as well as uteruses (uteri…?) It was confirmed today that my redux of It Started With an Allergy will be on at the Strathcona Edmonton Public Library for Fringe this summer. YAY!
I can’t do it in 24 hours, because I work until 5 pm. Yes, the 2nd Annual Writeathon begins at noon tomorrow! Last year’s was…bonkers. Fellow writers made velcro out of their beards and resorted to lacing of warm drinks (and then just tossing the mix altogether and drinking straight out of the mickey). Oh,Continue reading “I’m writing a play in 18 hours or less!”
I will say first: I love to cook. I make killer chocolate trifle. The Ukrainian lady who gave me her recipe for borscht said I was a very good cook – high praise. I make cookies every year for Christmas presents, and people anticipate them. But here’s the problem: When I cook for just meContinue reading “Why I hate being single #4: Food”
Since I’ve blogged about my endometriosis, and I had a minor revelation this weekend, it may be time to talk about my clinical depression. Yes, I’m a bag of laughs. Once again, I have no idea how long I’d officially been depressed. I was diagnosed by my GP in 2001, and took citalopram and wentContinue reading “Have you ever been so depressed you forgot to be happy?”
Brigitte: Are you sure it’s just cramps? Ginger: Just so you know…the words “just” and “cramps,” they don’t go together. From the film Ginger Snaps This is something I had never, NEVER, done before. I have a condition called endometriosis. (WARNING – description of female biology coming!) Basically, the stuff that comes out during aContinue reading “The reason I walked out of a show? Endometriosis.”
