I'd Love it If You'd Come See "Retard!"

For the past three years, I've been revising and polishing the one-woman show I've co-written, direct, and piano-accompany. It's called "Retard!" because that's what the woman, Jeffrie Givens, was called by students and teachers alike.
 
I must admit to being proud of it. Earlier versions have gotten a standing ovation and the current version is significantly improved.
 
We're doing a performance of it this Saturday, Nov. 1 at 8 PM at Wisteria Ways, a lovely brown shingle home in the Rockridge area of Oakland. There is a suggested donation of $15 to $20, all of which would go to Jeffrie. For info, reservations, and a one-minute video clip from the show, go to http://www.wisteriaways.org/events.html

I interview him for my PsychologyToday.com article today.
