A Date For The Calendar: Theatre On The Drive

February 15, 2019

It has been three years since the Caffe Napoli closed, and The Drive Coffee Bar took its place at 1670 Commercial; and it has proven to be a whole lot more than just a coffee bar. They make really good use of a long thin room. I have been to political meet-and-greets there, for example, and they have their Tuesday night open mic music sessions and on Wednesday night’s they have Weekly Stories.  In a couple of weeks they are adding intimate theatre to their repertoire.

On March 1st and 3rd at 8:00pm, Jo Dworschak will present her award-winning one-woman show, Oh Man; an autobiographical monologue featuring the problems she has with the men in her life, only to learn she’s pregnant and having a boy.

Tickets are available through Eventbrite.
