Erma Bombeck, Wendy Wasserstein and Nora Ephron:
Remembering Strong Witty Women
Eunice Bernard and Carol Clarke
EVENT DESCRIPTION: In the best tradition of Readers' Theatre, WORDS...ALIVE! will bring the works of three outstanding humorists to the stage of LLS. Bombeck, Wasserstein and Ephron speak for several generations of women who, during the last four decades of the 20th-century, experienced both immense and rapid changes in cultural and social mores. Through journalism, essays, play scripts and screen plays, these writers, with incredible insights and sensibilities, documented the plight of ordinary women finding their way in an ever-changing landscape. The readings will feature excerpts from Bombeck's At Wit's End, Wasserstein's Broadway play The Heidi Chronicles, and Ephron's movie When Harry Met Sally. Dolly Workman of the Delray Playhouse will join Eunice and Carol in capturing the spirit of their wit: the ability to use humor to expose the under currents of life's travails, thus giving us the power to overcome them. Don't miss this dynamic tribute to three amazing writers who will make you laugh, remember and rejoice.
