Award-Winning Show Coming To The Garage Theatre
Award-Winning playwright and performer, Terra Taylor Knudson, (2017 Encore Producer's Award, 2005 Arts Professional of the Year, Long Beach Arts Council), brings her solo show; Willy's Lil Virgin Queen fresh from the boards of the Santa Monica Playhouse to The Garage Theatre in Long Beach for very special three night engagement September 5th, 6th & 7th at 8:00pm.
From the first moment she was introduced to Shakespeare as a child, Terra has been devoted to him. As her "longest and most successful love affair", Willy has influenced every aspect of her life from first loves and first heartaches to first auditions and first flights away from home. And, since adolescence the Bard has in ways both elemental and magnificent, infiltrated and informed her every move.Willy's Lil Virgin Queen is an urgently-paced, seventy-five minute, hilarious and occasionally dark coming-of-age-story that dives deeply into the many roles that a woman plays on her road from girlhood to womanhood, and it does not shy away from the darker aspects of finding one's own purpose in a world that tells girls to shut-up and look pretty. And through it, Terra illuminates her personal journey to discover inner strength, triumph over tragedy and find her true power through the words of her truest love; William Shakespeare.
As was true in the days of the original Virgin Queen Elizabeth, in a man's world it takes a woman to rule herself. And in Willy's Lil Virgin Queen, one woman in particular learns that within the heart of every woman, of every person, there is a queen.
Think you don't "get" Shakespeare? "Thee's" and "Thou's" got you down? Never fear! There is something for everyone in this madcap, comic romp about a girl and her Bard. No prior love of Shakespeare required. (The rest is just much ado about nothing.
