I REMEMBER MAMA & DADDY & BOOZE
I REMEMBER MAMA & DADDY & BOOZEProvincetown Playhouse, NYC133 MacDougal StreetNew York, NY 10012(212) 998-5867
Mama Jean was a Texan Elizabeth Taylor who never had a thought she didn’t speak. Daddy Poo adored bikinis and martinis as much as his homosexual son. Jamie Brickhouse, called “a natural raconteur” by the Washington Post and “funny, touching, honest” by Charles Busch, tells darkly-comic, ribald stories about his flamboyant parents and overcoming his near-fatal love affair with booze. Ripped from his award-winning shows Dangerous When Wet and I Favor My Daddy, they’re riveting, hilarious, wise, and deeply insightful.
(Appropriate for adults and youth 17 and older )
A National Storytelling Network Grand Slam champion, 4-time MothSLAM champ, New York Times-published memoirist, Jamie Brickhouse has been featured on PBS-TV’s Stories from the Stage, The Moth Podcast, and tours the country with his multiple award-winning solo shows, Dangerous When Wet: Booze, Sex, and My Mother, based on his critically-acclaimed memoir, and I Favor My Daddy. He’s been published in the Washington Post, Daily Beast, Salon, Huffington Post, and Out. www.jamiebrickhouse.com

HSA: Keeping our Oars in the Water
Gathering to bear witness to experiences and stories of vulnerability and resilience during these turbulent times.
When a small boat meets turbulent water, the best way to maintain balance and stay upright is to keep your oar in the water. It will become your stabilizing rudder, enabling you to maintain course and steer your vulnerable craft towards safety. We are each like that small boat.
HSA hopes that sharing our experiences, stories, and ideas might be another stabilizing oar in the water for each of us. Please join us.
WHAT: Please join HSA members and other storytellers for an evening of listening to each other; a chance to “keep our oars in the water” through being heard or witnessing your peers in the experiences, stories, ideas that have emerged through this time of COVID-19. NOTE: this is not a therapeutic circle, but we do hope that it will be healing, supportive, informative, inspiring.
HOW: Each Wednesday at 7:00 PM EDT there will be a facilitated gathering to create a holding space to share the experiences and stories that have emerged through this turbulent time.
WHEN: Our gatherings will be on Wednesday evenings 7:00 to 8:30 PM EDT
Hold the dates: Wednesdays at 7:00 on April 29, May 6, 13, 20 and 27
WHERE: For more information or to get a Zoom link to join the call, kindly contact Lani Peterson (Lani@lanipeterson.com). Once you have the link, it will remain the same for all meetings. Future opportunities to co-facilitate a meeting are available. Please let us know if you are interested.
These gatherings are offered by the Healing Story Alliance as a service to our Community without charge. Please join us!
