  • What do a baton twirler, an ex-rodeo rider, and an actress have in common? They are just three of the many women whose lives are explored through their relationships to work, other women, parents, men, and the socio-political environment. Talking With is a summation of thoughts, events, actions, memories, hope, defeats, and dreams dramatizing the challenges that all of us face in contemporary society. Characters confront the audience directly with revelations that are not simply truthful, but deeply spiritual, hauntingly private, funny, and frighteningly exotic.
