The Crackpot Crones present an evening of comedy sketches and improv which may include: Eve Meets Lillith! True Adventures of Our Astonishing Lives in the Womyn’s Movement! The Lesbian on the Loose!

The Crackpot Crones, Terry Baum and Carolyn Myers, are two pioneer funny feminists who bring their theater of sketch comedy and improvisation to CodePINK’s April MMMEG, Sunday April 25th, 6pm at the Redwood Gardens, 2951 Derby St in Berkeley.

Improvisations and theater designed and performed for this one night only! AND MUCH MUCH MORE!

This will be a benefit for our NO DRONES Mother’s Day Actions from May 9th – 19th. See the calendar at http://www.bayareacodepink.org for more info.

Experiencing this Baum/Myers playwright duo, whose work has roused feminist and lefty audiences to action for thirty years, will knock you out of any present state of gloom and doom you might be in, as they challenge and spoof ourselves and our tendency to be ground down into inaction by the sheer effrontery of our country’s direction.

“Intriguing, enlightening, comical and real!” The Bay Times

TERRY BAUM (big city lesbian) and CAROLYN MYERS (small town heterosexual) are best friends. In 1974 Terry started the international renowned Lilith: A Women’s Theater from San Francisco and Carolyn joined the next year.

They wrote Dos Lesbos, a Play For, By and About Perverts in 1980, which inspired the first anthology of Lesbian plays, continues to be performed throughout the world, and offended the pope during World Pride 2000 in Rome.

In this century Baum ran for Congress (2004 Green Party Candidate) against Nancy Pelosi (she lost) and Myers ran off with The Hamazons, Warrior Princesses of Comedy.

Come to this not-to-be-missed Theater of the Crackpot Crones, written and performed for CodePINK NO DRONES womyn! Their quick-witted analysis of everything in the world from ancient global goddesses to current politics will crack you up laughing and have you believing that the human race maybe can survive!
