ABOUT THE PLAY:

In THAT’S ALL I GOT, Addie lets it all hang out as she offers up her wacky journey  to be creative and start anew as a divorced baby boomer and retired soap opera writer with an empty nest, too much time on her hands and too many poodles.  Still haunted by her twilighty-zoned-out dysfunctional family, Addie mixes her past, present, and future to become her own unique creation.

ABOUT THE PLAYWRIGHT:

Addie Walsh has had a successful career as a television writer, writing for a number of daytime dramas including All My Children, Days of Our Lives, One Life to Live, Guiding Light, As the World Turns, Loving, Search for Tomorrow, and Riviera, which was set in Monaco and shown across Europe.  She has been awarded an Emmy and 4 Writers Guild Awards.  Her plays COUNTERS and APRIL FOOLING were produced Off Broadway.

As an actor, Addie has performed often with the Kitchen Theater in Ithaca, NY, and as a member of the acting ensemble and playwright-in-residence at St. Louis Repertory Theater for 4 seasons.  She is a member of the Dramatists Guild and the Writers Guild. She received her BA in psychology/theatre from Smith College, an MA in playwriting, a Masters in Counseling, and a Masters in Education.

FEMININE MYSTIQUE: 50 YEARS LATER:

Our 2013 Reading Series celebrates the 50th anniversary of Betty Friedan’s groundbreaking treatise.  The plays in this series consider the changing modes of contemporary women’s lives while looking back at our shared history.  Some offer new visions for the future, while others point to the shifting problems women face in the new world.

 

 

 

 

 

NOTE ABOUT THE SHOW:

This play was developed as part of Project Y’s Self-Generated Performance Workshop. It had its first showing in July 2013 at TheaterLab.  Since then, Addie has updated the script and will be presenting a new version which includes video. We can’t wait to see Addie’s latest work with you!
