I was recently approached by the awesome author and screenwriter, Ellen Snortland, to help promote her new play. If you live near New York City, go check it out! It contains some GFB-esque themes, including self-defense. Kudos to Ellen! See promo text below.
Please join Gloria Steinem & Helen LaKelly Hunt in New York City for a showcase evening of Ellen Snortland’s: “Now That She’s Gone.” Gloria Steinem says, “ Ellen Snortland’s one-woman play, “Now That She’s Gone,” is what good theater is all about. Her funny and tragic, particular and universal story sends us home with a better understanding of our own.”

Now That She’s Gone is a play that explores Ellen Snortland’s often wacky, irreverent and sometimes torturous relationship with her Norwegian-American mother. Now That She’s Gone has been described as a Lily Tomlin / Garrison Keillor / Eve Ensler hybrid… passionate, poignant and funny in turns. A memoir piece with Eleanor Roosevelt, sex, drugs and lutefisk, the play and performance have received rave reviews and standing ovations in California, New York, and Washington, D.C.
