WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Pearl Curran was a housewife in early twentieth century St Louis. She was also the operator of an Ouija board through which Patience Worth, an author from the beyond, was purported to speak. Over the course of two decades, a remarkably prolific Patience (via Pearl) dictated millions of words in books, poems, and plays. And she regaled curious visitors, believers and nonbelievers alike, with cryptic and charming bon mots. Plumbing the rich archival holdings of the Missouri Historical Society, this piece explores fragmented identity, sublimated love affairs, the desire for fame, and the limits of credulity.

Staged reading.

Part of the Camden Fringe Festival
