This funny and gently in-your-face rumination muses on how we ignore and euphemize aging until we reach that tipping point where the future is shorter than the past. “If you are older than I, thank you for beating the bushes and leaving a trail,” says McCall. “If you are younger than I, think of me as waiting for you on the other side of your mid-life crisis. If you are my peer, welcome to the Bar Car. Drinks are on the house.”
Tulis McCall is an actor, writer, producer and performer. This is her third one-person show. What Everywoman Knows was produced at the Public Theatre and toured nationally. Running With Scissors, directed by Philip Proctor of The Firesign Theatre, was produced in Los Angeles. She is the recipient of the 2015 Best Storytelling Script Award from UNITED SOLO™ for her show All Aboard! Since 2007, she has hosted Monologues and Madness, an evening of original work read by 12-15 actors, each month at the Cornelia Street Café in Greenwich Village. McCall is the creator and editor of the theatre review site www.thefrontrowcenter.com that features 20 writers and covers over 500 shows per year.
She thinks the theatre is a temple. Period.

It was a real treat to watch you last night, but more than that, I felt like you were speaking what I think and feel. Getting older is a bitch that no one prepares you for and that happens in the fucking blink of an eye. I had a great aunt who had Alzheimer’s and died at age 100, 24 years ago. When she was about 85 and just starting the long slide into unknowingness she told me one morning that she was in the bathroom and looked in the mirror and saw an old lady. She was startled and looked around to see who it was and then realized it was her. She was very confused. “How can I be old? I don’t feel any different than I did when I was 25!” I know what she means now. Thank you for giving us WCA’s a voice.
