S.F. Fringe’s Cheesecake and Demerol. A Female’s Journey to Freedom
At the S.F. Fringe’s 21styear, hosted in San Francisco’s downtown Exit Theatre, among the over forty independent new creations was nurse Gene Gore’s story of her life time journey to female freedom. Her storytelling piece is a well constructed work that reveals Gore’s’s life from childhood during the Depression to nursing school and career, marriage, children, divorce, caring for aids patients, and female emancipation all of which is seasoned along the way with pathos and humor. Gene Gore’s testimony of a life of female growth toward liberation is a rare experience narrated with heartfelt simplicity and intimacy as though our storyteller is openly confiding in each one of us.
Cheesecake and Demerol plays through Sept 16 at the Exit Left ,156 Eddy St. For info visit www. 2012 San Francisco Fringe Festival
