MENTION MY BEAUTY written by Leslie Ayvazian
October 10 & 11 at 7:30pm
Directed by Martha Banta, Founder of the Adirondack Theatre Festival
In the 1960s and 70s, Leslie Ayvazian chose NOT to align herself with the women’s movement and there were consequences. MENTION MY BEAUTY is a funny, poignant, revelatory autobiographical theatre piece that looks at where Ayvazian’s attentions were during a time of rebellion, action, and indignation. From the mountains of the Adirondacks to the projects of Columbus, Ohio and many places in between, this is a woman’s story of an immigrant family, what it meant to be pegged “the pretty one”, the search for sex and love, and the secrets of it all. Acclaimed actor David Beach joins Ayvazian to bring to life what her memories think they are – but sometimes there’s a discrepancy.
