LAST DAYS OF DESMOND 'NANI' REESE Plays One Night Only 3/3
Last Days of Desmond 'Nani' Reese: A Stripper's History of the World
Directed by Abigail Deser
Written and performed by Heather Woodbury
In the year 2014, a young "ethno-femino-dance anthropologist" travels to post-quake, post-drought Los Angeles to research her 10,000 page dissertation on "The History of the World, as Told by Loose Women." Her final subject: the half-mad, 108 year-old legendary stripper Desmond "Nani" Reese, who is holed up in a bramble-covered shack with 27 cats. Woodbury channels the voices of these two unlikely heroines, illuminating the lives of outlaw women through the ages.
Award-winning playwright and solo performer Heather Woodbury is also the creator of What Ever and Tale of 2Cities: An American Joyride on Multiple Tracks. She is the recipient of a 2007 Obie, the inaugural Spalding Gray Award and other honors.
