Description

Bay Area Debut! Join AAUW-Palo Alto for a special presentation of the new living history performance Erma Bombeck: By Your Side on Saturday, May 18th at 2:30pm (one show only*) portrayed by acclaimed living history scholar, playwright & perfomer Susan Marie Frontczak.

**Please note there is only one show at 2:30pm on Saturday, May 18th**

Erma Bombeck captured with great poignancy and humor the daily life of a new American phenomenon: the suburban housewife. Believing you had to be able to laugh at life to get through it, she captured the essence of the housewife's daily struggles in her column "At Wit's End" three days a week, eventually appearing in 900 newspapers across the country and in books such as I Lost Everything in the Post-Natal Depression and The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank. She brought to American awareness the life of millions of women whose lives otherwise often felt invisible and taken for granted. She let women across America know: You are not alone. In fact, we number in the millions. I, too, am an American housewife, and I will laugh by your side.

Susan Marie Frontczak has performed living history programs professionally for 17 years and has been a professional storyteller for 28 years. She has been part of Ohio Chautauqua since 2010. Through Colorado Humanities, she is also active in Chautauqua training with both children and adults. http://www.storysmith.org

Produced by Live Story Productions - living history theater & documentary films.

*The 7PM showing is cancelled. All refunds have been issued.
