On June 2nd, 2007, I performed Birthday Trauma, an episode of Growing Up Linda  at Space Ark in Highland Park, California.


In Growing Up Linda a woman who believes she’s the daughter of a famous ice cream mogul must come to terms with her troubled past.  In Birthday Trauma, Linda recounts the events of her fifth birthday when she first started communicating with food.


For this iteration, I performed with Jackie Kay Knox, Joel Egger, and Dan Rae Wilson. Kate Elouise Mallor designed costumes.
