A one woman play about things we consume and stories we tell ourselves: a child lives alone amid left behind stuff. Acting out an interruption to her routine, she reveals a violent past and the horrors inhabiting her space. Her yearning for contact takes us on a journey of humor, pathos, and hope.
Blue Scarf Collective facilitates excellence in playwriting through development and production of our own theatrical work, recognizes the female perspective, and nurtures the talents of local theatre artists, while insisting upon diversity and reciprocal enrichment and education for both audiences and stage artists. We build partnerships with local arts and education organizations and represent Tampa Bay through arts festivals and conferences nationally and abroad. Blue Scarf Collective was founded in St. Petersburg, Florida by Actor/Writer Roxanne Fay, Poet/Musician/Playwright/Actor Aleshea Harris, & Writer /Teacher (and Blue Scarf Knitter)Heather L. Jones. Our original intent was just get together to discuss our writing, but on a friend’s suggestion, we decided to stage our work rather than just talk about it. And so we do, in venues ranging from a back-of-a-bar theatre, to a furniture store, to traditional theaters. Recently we have been joined by two Artistic Associates, musician Ngaire & Actor/Graphic Artist Joanna Sycz, both of whose talents enhance our individual plays and our mission. Since our inception in 2010, we have produced the following theatre events: The Waitress Play, written by Heather. Triage: The Mortality Plays, 3 one-acts on death by Heather, Aleshea, and Roxanne Blue Freakin Scarf, a late-night review by Heather, Aleshea, & Roxanne Killer Love Songs, a night of Murder Ballads featuring local artists Murder Ballad, a full-length play by Heather Home [Sweet Home], one-act plays by Heather and Roxanne and a staged reading of Memory Mirror, Wishing Mirror, by Heather In addition, BSC member, Aleshea Harris' new work, Rip. Tied., premiered at freeFall Theatre, and BSC members Heather L. Jones and Roxanne Fay's collaboration on My Unspeakabe Confessions: Gala Dali Declines to Explain Herself, is presented on an ongoing basis at the Dali Museum and for Home Resource in Sarasota. Aleshea & Ngaire brought Aleshea's play Oddlie to Edinburgh in summer 2012. Heather & Joanna are excited to bring The Hoarder's Child to Philadelphia in September. We are also excited to accept an office and mailing address at University of South Florida, St. Petersburg.
