Alive Series Is this Sunday!

Alive Series #3, August 19, 2012

The artists performing this Sunday tackle the often-elusive, sometimes frustrating, and always challenging question: What am I doing with my life? Characters in these performances will explore this personal process and the obstacles they are confronted with as they move forward in their decision — some are thoughtful and graceful, while other are just downright bull-headed.

Daughter of Salt

Written and performed by Kathleen Cole Burke

As a young Catholic woman, I am going through a process of discernment, where I pray to see if God is calling me to be a nun or a married woman.

My show Daughter of Salt is a letter to my future husband describing to him my discernment process and how I came to see that I’m maybe not called to be a nun as I’d once thought.

I go through girly things like if I’ll change my last name and what I hope he’s like, to the challenges that he and I would face in marriage, ranging from my disastrous cooking to my terminal illness.

Famous is comedic web series, in development, about a man, woman, their messed up life, and a video camera. Randy is determined to turn his life around, and he has determined that starring in his own reality show is the best way for him to do that. Famous takes a darkly humorous look at the predicaments and adventures of Randy and his long-suffering girlfriend, Julia. Is this just another poorly thought out scheme in a series of many? Or will Randy and Julia finally find the success they’ve always desired? Tune in to find out.
