Some description

Lauren Weedman’s one-woman show is a mostly autobiographical play based on her experiences working as a volunteer advocate in a Southern California prison for women. Weedman’s job is to listen, but talking is what she does best, with occasionally disastrous and frequently hilarious results. She plays dozens of characters, switching from prostitute to parole officer, addict to editor, with nuance and empathy. With one foot in Hollywood and the other in jail, the former Daily Show correspondent careens wildly between the two worlds, taking us on a poignant, entertaining, and completely unforgettable ride.

Studio Special Events bring unique performances and one-of-a-kind events from around the world to DC.

Whip smart, funny, and creative. Lauren Weedman juggles two-dozen characters with a frantic mania that’s admirable and impressive.
