she is going to tell them.This will be Carole's first solo performance!

Diane Barnes is an actor, writer, storyteller and solo performer. Born and raised in New York city, she is a well rooted SF Bay Area 415 transplant. After a career as a physician specializing in Diagnostic Radiology, she discovered improvisation and the power of storytelling. My Stroke of Luck, developed at the Marsh with David Ford, and directed by Rebecca Fisher has toured the US and Canadian Fringe circuit, and will be presented at the prestigious United Solo Festival at Theater Row in New York City in the fall. www.dianebarnes415.com

This is Hannah A. Taylor's first solo performance. Something she thought she would happen decades ago, but she got caught up in "performing" her life's work.Tonight, for the first time, she attempts her first solo, a work-in-progress. It's a singing and performing outing...a solo performance musical. Please be kind! She has teamed up with David Ford, dramaturg/development, Ellen Hoffman, composer and pianist, and Marc Monserrat-Drukker, director.
