Loveland: A One-Woman Show
Writer, actor, improv-comedian Ann Randolph has been called a “comedic genius—irreverent, hilarious and deeply human,” by the San Francisco Bay Times and “riotously demented and brilliantly humane” by The Guardian. After working alongside Will Ferrell in Groundlings, the West Coast version of Second City, she was discovered doing her one-woman show by Mel Brooks and his wife, actress Anne Bancroft, who were, in Brooks’s words, “blown away” by this “gloriously gifted” performer. Acclaimed for her outrageous physical comedy, inspired monologues, alternately hilarious and tragic characters, and poignant stories, Randolph weaves her life experience—including a three-year stint working and living at the Ohio State Mental Hospital in Athens, Ohio, to pay for her college education—into her shows.
This evening, she’ll present her award-winning one-woman show Loveland, about a character described as “an oversexed, boundary-lacking social misfit” named Franny Potts, flying from L.A. back home to Ohio to face up to the greatest loss of her life. Along the way, she encounters the mystery, tragedy, and yearning that unite us all.
