Marilee Talkington is a critically acclaimed actor, writer and director who earned her MFA from the American Conservatory Theatre marking her as one of only two legally blind actors in the country to do so.
Her solo show Truce, the story of her vision loss, has been getting fierce notice in the mainstream press and those in the blind/VI community who have attended that I’ve heard from strongly recommend it, indicating that “… it’s a powerful excursion into many issues faced by people becoming blind”. “Marilee captures exquisitely that profound sense of ambivalence, sometimes fear, sometimes loathing, that is often associated with progressive vision loss.”
“Truce” runs Thursday, April 8, Friday, April 9, and Saturday, April 10, all shows at 8 p.m. at the NOH SPACE in San Francisco. You can buy tickets here.
