At Least We Lived(?): Two Short Solo Works at Dixon Place's HOT! Festival
J.P. Makowski and Sam Bosworth
About this Show
There is no better way of self-examining regrets and mistakes then through the eyes of a wise drag queen. At Least We Lived(?) features two short solo works that do exactly that. The first piece, The Self-Improvement Workshop, places the audience in a court mandated drug use workshop, taught by the embittered, yet friendly Miss Mona, played by Makowski. The second piece entitled Defense features Bosworth as the fictional Kim Karr, the first female Secretary of Defense, as she attempts to explain a recent lapse of moral judgement which has placed her under public scrutiny.
