Laura Wiley is a jazz flutist and singer who performs with many different groups in the Bay Area. Website: www.lauraaustinwiley.com.

Karin Werner began a life long love affair with stories when she received her first library card in Cody, Wyoming. Many library cards later, she reaches back into myth and memory to create her personal style. Karin serves as Board Chair for the Storytelling Association of California.  

Penelope Whitney is married to an Italian and has learned the hard way that you’ve got to salt the water before adding the pasta. She often performs at Fireside Storytelling in San Francisco and is delighted to be at Tell it on Tuesday for the first time.  

Andre Le Mont Wilson has performed stories at The Moth, The Shout, Fireside, The Bay Area Storytelling Festival, and Monday Night Marsh. Over the last few years Andre has been published in the online disability literary journal Wordgathering and the Marin Poetry Center Press’s Changing Harm to Harmony.

Michael O’Brien is a San Francisco-based improviser, actor, writer, original member of the National Theatre of the Deranged and co-creator of “Tips on Travel with Karl and Carl.” Michael’s credits include solo and ensemble performances at the Marsh, the Throckmorton Theatre and the Holy City Zoo.

Bridget Frederick is getting ready for the Rogue Festival in Fresno. Evolution of Anger has been spinning its way through her head over the last year, and may continue to spin for some time to come. Bridget is the co-producer of Tell it on Tuesday, and she teaches yoga full time in the East Bay. Website: bridget-yoga.com

  • Leslie Scatchard, "The Drama Queen" excerpt
  • Gillian Summers, “Hush”
  • Richard Light, "Parts and Poems of the Body"
  • Gray, "Nobody Asked Me"

MUSIC: Stuart Rosh, Guitar and Vocals

A B O U T   T H E   P E R F O R M E R S

Stuart Rosh's music can be heard occasionally on public radio stations and in strange places like Kentucky Fried Chicken stores in England.  Under his legal name, Stuart Rojstaczer, he is mostly known as a novelist, geophysicist, and grade inflation expert.  His novel, The Mathematician's Shiva (Penguin Books), won the 2014 National Jewish Book Award for Outstanding Debut Fiction.

Leslie Scatchard has been performing for most of her life and especially loves telling true stories. She and her man, John, run a performance venue in Petaluma called Clear Heart where she directs children's theater. Next up for Leslie is a new hour-long show called "Leap", which is a bit more serious than "The Drama Queen" but still shows Leslie's penchant for finding the humorous in this crazy life.

Gillian Summers grew up in Liverpool, UK. She emigrated to the USA in 2001 from Australia. She developed ‘hush’ in collaboration with the Marsh’s David Ford and it is her first full-length solo play. Tonight she will be performing the opening 22 minutes of the play.

Richard Light is a native San Franciscan. He has studied theater, dance, music, Chinese medicine, and bodywork in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City. This is his first solo theater piece and is grateful to be performing its first part at Tell It On Tuesday.

Gray is on a mission to love Existence (in all of its forms) with such wild abandon that she inspires in you the courage and enthusiasm to do the same.
