THE MAGNIFICENCE OF THE DISASTER
Written and Performed by Rebecca Fisher
Developed with David Ford
Benefit Performances for The Marsh
Sundays | May 15 & May 22 at 5pm | Berkeley
“Smart, disarmingly funny and unmistakably affecting.” — SF Chronicle
“The only thing an audience member can do is absorb the ‘magnificence’ of it.” — Memphis Commercial Appeal
“A story both highly individual and culturally resonant.” — SF Bay Guardian
What’s a disaster if you don’t have time to marvel at it? Rebecca’s aunt has a point. Natural disasters have scientific reasons for happening. Human disasters are harder to piece apart. Rebecca’s family journey from southern gentility to mayhem and tragedy is no easy disaster to make sense of. But while she does, Rebecca may as well linger and absorb the magnificence of it all.
Rebecca Fisher is a director, producer, and performer of solo work. Most recently she performed MEMPHIS ON MY MIND at The Marsh Berkeley, a show developed with Charlie Varon and an SF Best of Fringe show. She has directed shows at The Exit, SF Fringe Festival, and most recently Mark Kenward’s NANTUCKET at The Marsh. She is a co-producer of Tell It On Tuesday, now in its 11th year, and creator of The Marsh Writing Cabaret that is on the second Tuesday of every month. The Magnificence of the Disaster was developed with David Ford as part of the 2005 Marsh Performance Initiative. www.rebeccamfisher.com
