Two extraordinary women in their solo performances about life and growing up facing difficulties.
Jellybean, written and performed by Lee Harrington
Lee Harrington says it is not hyperbole to say that her estranged biological mother, Bonanza Jellybean, calls her roughly 25 times a day. She has stopped answering these calls. Her story is one of triumph in the face of challenging odds, and coping with obstacles through humor. While Jellybean caused a lot of pain, Harrington is still able to acknowledge positives that came from her unique upbringing.

Running into me, written and performed by Vickie Tanner
We follow Tanner’s narrative arc from one parent to another, from one school to another, from one coast to another, from one job to another, from one crisis point to another. Each is expressed through a tightly choreographed fluidity of movement. As much as Running Into Me is about Tanner herself, it is also a weave of other people’s stories interlaced with her own.
