naked 8

On December 10, 1999 Penny Templeton was on stage with five actresses in the original cast of Joyce Carol Oates, I Stand Before You Naked when it opened at the renowned American Place Theater. Last year, while coaching actress, Jody Kay Litman, star of her own one-woman-show, Monster in My Brain Penny suggested trying a monologue from I Stand Before You Naked. Ms. Litman’s affinity for the material led Penny to seek out the author with a special request to allow her to restage the play as a one-woman-show. With Ms. Oates permission in hand Penny re-imagined the play and began directing Ms. Litman in earnest. On at 8pm June 21st and June 22nd only audiences will have the opportunity to view the result as Jody Kay Litman, directed by Penny Templeton takes the stage of the Barrington Theater as the various tormented women in Joyce Carol Oates haunting, I Stand Before You Naked.
