"You know the best way for me to ruin someone’s life? Get involved with them."

This three-ring-circus of short plays from our Friends & Neighbors Festival forms a meditation on media exposure, shame and personal responsibility in 21st-century America.

In A Night in Jail, a newly incarcerated starlet is shocked to discover that her guard can’t be bribed and that her visitor is a deposed—and decapitated—French monarch. The bitter wife of a disgraced politician goes rogue, much to the dismay of her adult children, during an awkward satellite interview in The Toilet Stall. When the titular Freak tries some incognito pre-natal shopping, she can’t quite avoid the advice of fellow shoppers or the judgment of the gay sperm donor who made it possible for her to become “Dodecamom.”

Several of her works have been produced in New York and San Francisco, including the No Nude Men Theatre Company. Luterman has published two collections of poetry as well as several personal essays. Currently she works as as a poet-in-the-schools, as a playwright-mentor with Each One Reach One, (EORO.org) and with the program Poetry Out Loud. She also performs improvisational movement, music and spoken word with Wing It! ensemble in Oakland, California.
