RKP and Cyrano's presents: The Old Woman Who Lost Her Voice, a modern day fairytale.
Once upon a time, in a land not too far from here, there lived an old woman... who lost her voice. She didn't lose her voice suddenly. It happened over time. In fact it happened so slowly that at first no one even noticed..." Jill Bess' new play is the story of an old woman, named Galena, who wakes up one day unable to speak. A cast of eight play 20 different roles in this sometimes comedy, sometimes drama, sometimes wrenching heartache of a story. The Old Woman Who Lost Her Voice is a modern day fairy tale that speaks to anyone who has ever felt silenced.
Jill Bess, an Alaskan for over 30 years, is originally from Southern California, where she received her BA in Drama from the University of California, Irvine. Jill’s works include Crazy Like Me, The Frenchman and the Dutchman - A Love Story, Simple Melody (2014 Tennessee Williams Literary Festival finalist), No More, Confessions of a PK, This Stranger My Friend, Overboard, The Rapunzel Syndrome and several ten-minute pieces including The Ransom (LFTC Play Slam 2016), Waze and Means, Friday Night Lights, and her nationally award winning full length musical and one-woman show, The Mommy Dance. The Old Woman Who Lost Her Voice was first read at the Last Frontier Theatre Conference as part of their 2018 Play Lab.
