She will present: Jonna’s Body, Please Hold — Enter the kooky world inside Jonna’s Body, where life’s daily chaos is corralled by Pearl, Jonna’s loyal and sassy internal receptionist, as she fields calls from a parade of off-beat body parts: Baby Toe trapped in a tight pump; Sgt. Coif leading a head full of unruly troops; Uta and Ula begging to be released from their brassiere imprisonment! When two nasty killers invade, it’s a fight for Jonna’s life. This moving and hilarious one-woman play takes us on a wild ride into the realm of health, illness, joy, and the beauty of life.
