"One day on my way to the market a truck pulled over and this guy got out and asked me if I wanted to have coffee. He was bare-chested and covered with grass, so I said yes. A few days later, after listening to my neighbor threaten to kill someone, I packed a bag and entered Denny's world."
In this new one-woman show, writer, performer and comedian Lauren Weedman takes us to the world of Single Room Occupancy, a place of lawn care, electric guitars, the same dinner every night, horror movies and sex.
Lauren Weedman is an acclaimed monologuist, whose previous shows include Bust and No. . . You Shut Up, and whose memoire is titled, A Woman Trapped in a Woman’s Body. She has appeared on Reno 911, Curb Your Enthusiasm, True Blood and as “Horny Patty” on the HBO series Hung.

"Weedman tackles the banalities of life with the obsessive single-mindedness of Wile E. Coyote-clever, resolute, painfully self-aware of her own ridiculousness, and hilarious because of it" -The Stranger
