Terra’s Temple Presents “Pilgrimage: Why I am not an Indian”

Pilgrimage: Why I am not an Indian A solo performance piece conceived by Elanie Magree Directed by Rebecca Fisher Friday, July 6 7:30 curtain box office opens at 7pm $10 per ticket NOTA, all proceeds go to the Temple. Very Limited Seating RSVP Required, please email Rebecca: rebfish@pacbell.net Sacred Living Room Theatre and Blessing for the Journey Presents Elaine Magree in a solo theatre performance which asks: What part Indian are you? And what’s up with that Ex-Nun and the box of ashes?! Elaine, intrepid lesbian, turkey-baster Mom, and childhood abuse survivor, sets out at 60 to untangle the Story of her Mixed Heritage. If only that were ALL she’d inherited from her dramatically disturbed mother. A tale of irony, outrage and irreverence. Fun for dysfunctionals, genealogists, social activists, anyone who loves their family despite it all, and for the deeply hopeful. This intimate performance at Terra’s Temple in Oakland will send Elaine off to The Winnipeg and Minnesota Fringe Festivals this summer. For more information about Elaine and the show Read more »
