Dirty Barbie: A theatrical production to benefit D/CLAW
There isn't another DC Lady Arm Wrestlers match for a few months, but don't think D/CLAW is in a lull. In January, D/CLAW is joining forces with a fabulous playwright to host a theatrical production "Dirty Barbie and other Girlhood Tales."
The one-woman play features playwright Denise Stewart, who takes us through a tragic Southern upbringing and the unusual coping mechanisms that helped her through her childhood. Spinning tales of scarlet fever, scotch and girls gone wild, Denise tells her tale with the help of her alter ego, Dirty Barbie and puts the "fun" back in dysfunctional.
The money from ticket sales will go to D/CLAW.
As D/CLAW donates all of the proceeds collected at arm wrestling matches to charity, this is a way for us to raise the money we need to keep our organization going. A dance party featuring the fine tunes of our D/CLAW song master extraordinaire DJ Booger will follow the show.
Tickets for the show are $20 in advance and can be purchased here or from a D/CLAW member by emailing DCLAWleague@gmail.com.
When - 8 pm, Jan 14
Where - The Corner Store, nonprofit arts center
900 South Carolina Ave, SE
Cost: $20 advance, $25 at the door
