The Sanctuary Theatre, Inc. is proud to announce the revival of its hit one-woman show, “Bag Lady” by Jean-Claude van Itallie. The production runs as part of the 2009 Capital Fringe Festival, with veteran Washington actress Elizabeth Bruce reprising the role of Clara that the Washington Post called “startlingly convincing” and that the Hill Rag raved: “”Phenomenal … a captivating breathless fury.” BAG LADY is directed by Michael Oliver, with sound design by Frank Rosario. The late Rajan Berry did the music for the original production. We proudly use his music in this revival.

The show opens on Sunday, July 12, 2009, at 4:30 at The Bedroom at Fort Fringe at 612 L St., NW. Ms. Bruce will be repeating her fury on four other occasions at times as random as Clara’s dinner breaks—July15 @ 5 pm, July 17 @ 6pm, July 23 @ 9pm, and July 26 @noon. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased through the Festival Box Office at 866.811.4111. Check the Fringe website at www.capitalfringe.org for more information.
