An Intimate Evening with Death, Herself is a 90-minute one-woman show. Douglass Truth is Dorothy, a meatloaf-phobic waitress. She goes to a bar after a bad day on the cafeteria line and meets Tod, who turns out to be the Grim Reaper. In the course of an understated, unpretentious, poignant and tender, droll and massively ambitious performance, Dorothy helps her audience relate to death without flinching, and with abundant amusement: Death has a new face.
Warning: everyone who sees this show will someday die.
“Douglass Truth is the love-child of Eddie Izzard and Lily Tomlin.”
“Funny, engrossing, heretical, beautiful.”
Truth will also be doing performances at the prestigious United Solo Theater Festival in NYC.
Douglass Truth moved to Pittsfield, MA from California in 2001, just in time to take part in Pittsfield’s Storefront Artist Project. The “Death, Herself” show began in the Berkshires in 2005 with a dinner theater show at The Dreamaway Lodge. He has since performed it almost 100 times. Douglass Truth returned to California in 2009. He lives in Nevada City, CA.
