Ruins of Achelach, Restaged

December 11, 2016

On January 8, I need to set things straight with Grandma.


I performed Ruins of Achelach for one-night-only in October. The theater was packed, the audience cheered, and yet, I woke up the next day feeling uneasy. I had made an error -- a harmless quip that slipped so easily off of the tongue had belittled the achievements of my grandmother (of blessed memory)... in public! A granddaughter's greatest insult. Oh, why?!

Remorseful, I waited to hear murmured in my ear, "what am I, chopped liver?" But the universe had veered off course leaving only a silent icy trail behind. 

For the sake of my grandma and by extension, humanity, I must set things straight. Thanks to Theaterlab, I will perform Ruins of Achelach, corrected, with audience and camera (and hopefully grandma) as witness.

The event will conclude with a moment off-camera for those who wish to air and have forgiven regretted insults inflicted upon loved ones (not necessarily present).
