Distinctly Different: Five New Solo Shorts

solo performance · walk a mile productions · Ages 16+ · United States of America

one person show

These heartfelt, and often funny, performances offer a window into the journey to find self-love. From the struggle of coming out to self reflections in the psych ward. From growing up fast in a one-parent family to talking to your uncooperative genitalia. There is a little something for everyone.

I Don’t Care What You Think, I Care How You Feel – by Taylor McWhorter

Self judgement is one of the hardest things to overcome. Instead of shaming himself for the things that make him different, Taylor pours out his personal stories of growing up with the help of his loving and supportive parents.

Inside These White Walls: A Love Story- by Gabriella Gulbranson

Paging Doctor Insane, a dark dramedy is waiting for you! A 17 year old girl wakes up abruptly inside a psychiatric ward on suicide watch. Through satire and bitter irony she walks through little moments of her life leading up to her imprisonment as she tries to figure out where she’s truly safe… behind these white walls or outside in the arms of her toxic lifestyle that she so desperately tried escaping?

To Be – by Nathan Berry

A young man has to search through the recesses of his mind using rap and poetry in order to connect to a role he is auditioning for.

Birdie – by Ty Pickett

Birdie is the story of a 15 year old’s struggle to let himself be heard. Pressured by the demands of his peers as he seeks to take flight from his nest in rural America, Birdie seeks refuge in his loving border collie, Holly, and his imaginary best friend. Meanwhile, his mother struggles to reach out to her son as, unbeknownst to her, events are rapidly escalating beyond control. “If you do not speak, how can you hope to be heard?”

A Vaginal Tragedy – by Taylor Shell

A peak into Taylor Delores Shell’s vagina.

Due to timing reasons we have opted to run 4 of the 5 shows each night. This way we can present 4 fully flushed out productions rather than 5 rushed ones. Plus this means there is a different variation of the lineup each night!!! See below for the dates that each show ‘WILL NOT’ be performing.

June 3rd – Birdie – Ty Pickett
June 10th – I Don’t Care What You Think, I Care How You Feel – Taylor McWhorter
June 16th – Inside These White Walls: A Love Story – Gabriella Gulbranson
June 17th – To Be – Nathan Berry
