Excellent news - thanks in no small part to her persuasive case for weaving concubinage into our country's socio-economic fabric, Amanda's been invited to give her talk again at Dixon Place Dec. 19 at 7:30. Mark your calendars! The talk will be paired with a short excerpt of a play-in-progress of mine, a telenovela-stage play mashup tentatively titled "Sabrina, La Caprichosa" (Sabrina, the Capricious One)
For those who couldn't make the May performance, to give you a taste of the vivid, evocative projections, attached is one that captures the moment in which Walmart heiress Christy Walton, the wealthiest woman in America, invites her concubine Manuel Venegas for the first time into her boudoir. Don't let her big smile fool you. She's as nervous as he is!
