Half Stand Up Routine, Half AA Speech, Walterhoope Presents HALF GALLON OF FRUIT JARS

WH_Half Gallon of Fruit Jars logoHalf Stand Up Routine, Half AA Speech, Walterhoope Presents the World Premiere of HALF GALLON FRUIT JARS Jars by William Vaughan

Walterhoope will present the world premiere of Half Gallon Fruit Jars, a new play by Cincinnati playwright William Vaughan.

The show will run for three performances over one weekend only: Friday June 14 at 7:30pm and Saturday June 15 at 2pm and 7:30pm. Performances will take place at Wave Pool in Camp Washington (2940 Colerain Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45225.) Single tickets, which include light refreshments, are now on sale for $10 at https://app.arts-people.com/index.php?ticketing=walt or at walterhoope.com.

Directed by William Vaughan and starring Jared Joplin as R.C., this intimate one-person play explores a man’s journey from self-loathing to self-acceptance and the grey area in between.

“About four years ago I got my hands on a recording of my great grandfather’s 1982 AA Speech and was struck by not only his story, but how inherently theatrical it was,” says playwright and director William Vaughan, “I then came across a diary he had kept while he was hospitalized in Atlanta, and began to piece together what is now Half Gallon Fruit Jars. I can’t say that it’s entirely biographical as I have changed, rearranged, and added quite a bit of dialogue, but I believe this play perfectly captures his larger than life personality and the larger than life legacy that he left behind.”
