Going On - A One Woman Show by Liz Richardson
Seattle Shambhala is excited to present an evening of entertainment by Liz Richardson, an actress from the stages of London and Canada. Her show tells her personal journey weaving together the themes of breaking into the acting scene as an understudy with Peter O’Toole - waiting for the call that she would be ‘going on’ - along with the experience dealing with her ailing mother during her 3-year retreat at Gampo Abbey.
As Plank Magazine describes, “She stands on a stage with a single chair and takes on over a dozen characters in the telling of her personal story of discovery, realization and simply going on. No props or costume changes are needed for Richardson to inhabit each of the characters she portrays. Her voice of Peter O’Toole is spot on.”
“Richardson is telling a story about her life that she is very keen to tell. She draws from her early acting experiences and from recent heart wrenching personal and family dramas that are all too real.” - Vancouver Fringe Festival Review from "Culture, Travel, Food, Music - Vancouver and Beyond"
A Going On show ticket is included in the fee for the Maitri Five Wisdoms program, so no need to purchase a ticket separately. See the Maitri Five Wisdoms program page for more detail.
