Central Works to Close Season with RECIPE, Opening 10/18Central Works to Close Season with RECIPE, Opening 10/18
by BWW News Desk - Sep 5, 2014

Central Works concludes the 2014 season with 'Recipe,' a profoundly funny new work by Michael Gene Sullivan, opening with a press Night on Saturday October 18 at 8 pm and running through November 23 at the historic Berkeley City Club. Sullivan serves up the laughs in this delicious take on a circle of sweet old grandmotherly bakers, who just happen to be dedicated to the armed overthrow of the United States government. But baking pies and cakes isn't enough to satisfy these four intrepid refugees from the sixties, and their burning desire to 'Up the Revolution!' Directed by Gary Graves, 'Recipe'is Central Works 45th world premiere and features Velina Brown* (Diane), Tamar Cohn (Ruth), Phoebe Moyer* (Lillian), Lynne Soffer* (Helen) and Jan Zvaifler (Janice), (*member AEA). It's one thing to say 'The government is probably listening to my calls,' but what do you do when you find out it's true? If it seems that the government that you call 'a fascist, surveillance state' has specifically targeted you, is specifically watching YOU (it's not paranoia if they really are after you!), then what? How do you live your life knowing that all your fears may, actually, be true? (more...)

New Memoir, MATTRESS ACTRESS, is ReleasedNew Memoir, MATTRESS ACTRESS, is Released
by BWW News Desk - Oct 16, 2013

Prostitution is never the first choice for most young ladies when contemplating their future careers in high school. It generally comes about from a lack of viable alternatives. Often there is a sense of worthlessness that builds over years leading to this decision. 'Mattress Actress' is the story of Annika Cleeve's eighteen years as a call girl. Her troubled childhood in Queensland led to working in a brothel on the Sunshine Coast at the age of fifteen, and from there Annika worked her way up to the high-end parlors, agencies and private work in various parts of Australia and internationally. In this book, Annika reveals the truth of a call girl's life; the clients, the girls, the parlor bosses, the rip-off merchants, the drug deaths, the white slavery, the discrimination, the corrupt police and politicians, the exotic travel and the money. Mattress Actress is a revealing and gutsy look at someone practicing the world's oldest profession in the late twentieth century. From wide-eyed innocent to experienced and successful professional, Annika's story is both shocking and highly entertaining. 'Annika Cleeve is not her real name but this is her real story: a raw and honest account of life in the raw as a new recruit to The Oldest Profession.' - Andrew Rule 'Mattress Actress' is available in both print and ebook format. Book Information: 'Mattress Actress' Author: Annika Cleeve Publisher: Momentum ISBN: 978-1480287471 Published: September 2012 Pages: 448 Genre: Memoir About The Author: Annika Cleeve has an alphabet of qualifications behind her name, and during her studies she spent 18 years as a call girl, plying her trade all over the world.

BWW Reviews: THE OLDEST PROFESSION is Fun and Full of HeartBWW Reviews: THE OLDEST PROFESSION is Fun and Full of Heart
by David Clarke - Nov 6, 2012

Theatre Southwest is currently presenting The Oldest Profession by Paula Vogel, who is known for her decidedly strong, controversial works like HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE that examines incest and THE BALTIMORE WALTZ that is about AIDS. In The Oldest Profession, she gives audiences a chance to see a softer side of her writing, using prostitution as a way to explore the community of sisterhood while weaving in dated but humorous political zingers (i.e. "This is America where any girl can start in the alley and wind up a madam!") disparaging the economic boom and decline that began with President Reagan's 80s. In the end, this show is really about the passing of businesses, clients, and our close friends and how we deal with that loss as a community. (more...)
