Quick Dish NY: SHATTERED Tragicomedy Solo Show from Diana Varco 9.25 at Caveat
Saturday, September 25th, solo artist DIANA VARCO will bring Caveat a solo performance of her fast-paced tragicomedy Shattered. The playwright and performer is a UCB/Groundlings trained improvisor, story-teller and actress who uses the power of humor to heal. Shattered employs comedy and character-work “to explore mental health, the impact of sexual assault, power of shame, post-traumatic growth, and much more!” The show has graced stages in LA, NYC (off-Broadway,) and most recently, with a 25 show run at Edinburgh Fringe. Come watch as Diana takes a look at her past relationships, exploring “dating, dysfunction, and sexual devastation” through the voices of 35 characters. Using flashback, narration, and personification of a shattered psyche, Diana will bring the audience the tale of how one individual can pick up the pieces to make themself whole again.
