A collection of two one-person shows, created, written and produced by Stefané Zamorano and Moira Quirk. “Pocha” (an Americanized Mexican who does not speak Spanish) takes a comical look into the life of a middle class Latina and her struggle with being single. Meanwhile Moira Quirk, from Nickelodeon’s “Guts” as well as voiceover work on many cartoons including “My Life as a Teenage Robot” performs “Domestic Bliss” in which she gleefully gives us her take on being a Brit in America in her own saucy and irreverent way.
The show runs every Thursday night in June. June 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, 2006 at the ACME Comedy Theatre 135 N. La Brea Ave Los Angeles, CA 90036 (323) 525-0202. Showtime 8pm Tickets $10.00.
