Opens July 10 Edgy, unapologetic, funny, wickedly honest, hell-bent, and loudmouth, Christine Rathbun Ernst is a writer, poet, and performer. Her play about her battle with breast cancer, "Reconstruction or How I Learned to Pay Attention," has been performed throughout New England. She performed "The Further Adventures of a Fat Ass Cancer Bitch" at Cotuit Center for the Arts' Black Box Theater in 2011, "The Fat Ass Cancer Bitch Goes Shopping," there in 2012, and "The Fat Ass Cancer Bitch Outside the Box" in 2013. Ernst continues her autobiographical reflections, blending storytelling, spoken word, poetry, and commentary on daily life we can all relate to. The stories are about politics, aging, changing family dynamics, the examined life, and the "humor that you have to locate in your day-to-day--otherwise it would be unbearable," said Ernst. "I write because all I know to do is to share the story. And the best part is that I hear the stories back. People say 'I can so relate! I so hear what you are talking about. I feel the same way.'" July 10-12, 2014 July 24-26, 2014 July 31 - August 2 in the Art Studio Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening performances at 8pm Tickets: $15 / $12 Members
