For Giving Productions presents The Valerie of Now & Imagining Brad by Peter Hedges.
Featuring Deb Judith Jones Arute, Marika Sayer & Debrianna Mansini. The Valerie of Now is a monologue delivered by Valerie on the occasion of her 12th birthday. She is home alone preparing for her party when she suddenly, and for the first time, she begins her menstrual period. She goes through a series of very funny phone calls to friends, some real some imagined. During this time we see her begin to go from a little girl, to the emerging women she will become, and then back to a little girl just wanting her mother. For young girls circling this, and having already pasted this inanition, this play comes home to them. Young Santa Fe actress, Marika Sayer has just turned 13, and she portrays Valerie with such grace that one suspect’s she has acted all her life. Imagining Brad is a play not suited for anyone under 18 as it deals with abuse.
