Despite the fact that Math Porn purveyor Nate Silver has revoked beer’s hard-earned recession-proof status, we venture to guess there’s a few of us who may still find utility in “What’s a Girl to Do When It’s Time to Put Down the Drink?” — a one-woman show by Tara Handron about alcoholic women in various stages of breakdown and recovery.
Addiction is a tough subject and Handron is not likely to sugar-coat it, as her graduate work in the subject at Georgetown University (she’s local-ish!) informed her writing. She’s also an alumna of New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, for those momentarily concerned this will be a monotone thesis defense.
If you’re also entertaining fears that such a show may actually drive you to drink (assuming you weren’t already endogenously disposed to do so), it supposedly has an optimistic ending. It will only be at the H Street Playhouse through Wednesday, so go soon! With that Mos Def show you were totally going to buy tickets to now sold out, what else are you going to do?
