March 18th & 19th
What Happens Next
or, I’ve Been Waiting My Whole Life to be Middle Aged
Written and Performed by Carrie Classon
Directed by Vaughn Irving
In the space of a few days, Carrie Classon lost her job, her marriage, and her home—all while living in Lagos, Nigeria. With no idea of what just happened and no plan for the future, she decides to stay in Africa and treat this series of catastrophes as an opportunity to begin “a significant remodeling of the self.”
A Santa Fe Playhouse premiere, this true story performed by the author, is one of reinvention at midlife which takes the audience on an exuberant and insightful romp from the African Continent to New Mexico, in an intimate exploration of the awkward, embarrassing, and ultimately exhilarating experience of second adolescence.
Carrie Classon is a past member of Actors’ Equity and is represented by Aevitas Creative Management of New York.
Showtimes are Saturday, March 18th at 7:30pm and Sunday, March 19th at 2:00pm.
All tickets are $15.
