Description

By turns a love story, a humorous look at California’s alternative life style and the history of a man’s reluctant emergence from a protective cocoon, this new autobiographical play chronicles Rutherford’s encounter with a dancer, the mysterious Hummingbird woman. Sixteen times ‘Best of Fringe’ winner and recipient of the London Brickenden Award, Randy Rutherford is a writer, humorist and solo performer who makes his home in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was a folksinger in Alaska during the 70s. After giving up music and performing because of a progressive hearing loss, he earned an MFA in Painting from California College of Arts and Crafts. Soon, however, he began to miss performing and returned to the stage in the early 90s.  Since then, he has created three critically acclaimed autobiographical plays “Weaverville Waltz,” “My Brother Sang Like Roy Orbison” and “One Frigid Shiny Knight.”
