February 18: Jeanine Walker
by Anca Szilagyi
Join us February 18, 7-8 pm for Jeanine Walker’s play “Polarities”, the first Furnace of 2015!
Teen siblings swat at flies, greet annoying classmates, drink milkshakes, and philosophize one night in 1993 at a Friendly’s in south central Pennsylvania. This encounter, transcribed verbatim by Jeanine Walker and her brother over twenty years ago will be brought to life with the aid of multiple performers (yes, including the original brother) and live sound effects.
Jeanine Walker is the host of Cheap Wine & Poetry and Cheap Beer & Prose at Hugo House. Her poetry has been published in Cimarron Review, Cream City Review, Narrative, PageBoy, Web Conjunctions, and other journals. She has a Ph.D. in Creative Writing and Literature from the University of Houston and for the past five years has been the manager of the Writers in the Schools Program at Seattle Arts & Lectures. Front woman of the Drop Shadows, she is co-founder of Buddy & Buddy Productions and host of Mixed Bag, their live, webcast variety show.
Join us live at the Hollow Earth Radio performance space, 2018 A E Union Street, or tune in at hollowearthreadio.org at 7 pm PST.
