Good Morning Anita Hill . . .
full title: "Good Morning Anita Hill It's Ginni Thomas I Just Wanted To Reach Across the Airwaves and the Years and Ask You To Consider Something I Would Love You To Consider an Apology Sometime and Some Full Explanation of Why You Did What You Did With My Husband So Give It Some Thought and Certainly Pray About This and Come To Understand Why You Did What You Did Okay Have a Good Day." written and performed by Deb Margolin directed by Merri Milwe Who are we at the moment we flip someone the bird; show the middle finger to a stranger? And what is tragedy? Is it possible that one definition of tragedy involves the realization that, in order to address an oppressor, or seek redress from him successfully, we must descend to his level? Here's what happens when a middle-aged Jewish woman confronts her road rage at the 20-year-old intersection of young motherhood and the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas hearings. With a fair amount of Bristol Palin tossed in. For booking inquires, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.

8 Stops by Deb Margolin
OBIE Award winner Deb Margolin's thought-provoking new solo work is a comedy concerning the grief of endless compassion! It’s about death, the private lives of animals, the suburbs, the spiritual exurbs, illness, desire, and a subway ride with a motherless child who Deb realizes she has only 8 stops to raise! Isn’t that all the time we ever really have…8 Stops? April 16-22, 2015 by special arrangement with the Cherry Lane Theater. For more: http://allforonetheater.org/show/8-stops/ Developed as part of writing residency with celebrated poet and performance artist Dael Orlandersmith at the Kimmel Center, this rousing world-premiere work will leave you with classical questions about the nature of compassion and the limits, and the limitlessness, of human endurance. “Alternatingly funny and poignant…she elevates this commonplace tale to the level of heroism.” -- Philadelphia Inquirer “Deb Margolin makes us laugh about how hard life can be. It shouldn’t be funny, and yet, when we see the world through her eyes — …we are willing to admit that maybe there is something to laugh about. It is impossible to keep your distance.” --Broad Street Review -- Philadelphia
Sundance Film Festival Classics "Countertransference"
A lonely woman with assertiveness issues finds her problems multiplied in therapy. Programmer's Note: 'Countertransference,' Madeleine Olnek's ( http://www.madeleineolnek.com ) second Sundance Film Festival entry (she debuted in Park City with the short film 'Hold Up' in 2006) shows how her background as a playwright has enabled her to harness stellar performances (most notably Deb Margolin as the lead) and deliver a script textured with both hilarity and depth. Overcoming some challenges on set - like an equipment truck hitting a parked car and causing $1,400 worth of damage - the fearless director put together what was one of this year's most hysterical productions. Olnek returns to the Festival this year with her feature 'Codependent Lesbian Alien Seeks Same' which shows her universal appeal for laughs and language, and proves that you don't need a ton of dough to make a proper science-fiction fantasy. http://www.madeleineolnek.com
