In her solo sketch comedy show "Strong Female Lead," Katie Stone focuses on upholding while simultaneously lampooning the feminist culture that defines her comedy. Katie has performed at festivals nationwide including San Francisco Sketchfest, Blue Whale, and Orlando Indie Comedy Festivals. She performs with LGBTQ sketch comedy troupe Martini Ranch, and in "Menenists," a satiric play about the alt-right recommended by the Austin Chronicle. Many men hate her online, which feels good most days.
From a nicotine-deprived astronaut to a jilted wedding guest, Stephanie Thoreson's Torch Song is a character-driven show about women on the edge. A simple, stripped-down anthology of scenes, Thoreson continues to explore the same bittersweetly comic territory of her debut one-woman show Shattered Dreams with a follow-up that's at once more grounded and more absurd, and ultimately more interested in getting inside its characters' heads than inside their world. Told in minimalist monologues and set pieces, Torch Song zooms in on one terrible moment from each of its characters lives, walking the fine line between comedy and tragedy that can be best be described as "been there."
