Award Winning Moth Storytellers
Overcome? Or, Over IT?
True Tales of Courage and Occasional Vanity
DEBRA EHRHARDT Actress/Author Debra knows “Jamaica Farewell” is more than a song. She risked her life escaping her home in Jamaica during a violent revolution. Fleeing her island paradise was beyond dangerous, however, with the help of an unwitting CIA agent, she fled. After escaping poverty, prison and rape in her courageous pursuit, Debra has fulfilled her dream: Coming to America. DEBRA’S MOTTO: Stirred. Not Shaken.
BRENDA ADELSON Actress/Author Brenda has her own definition of the F word: Forgiveness. Creator and star of the critically acclaimed one-woman show, My Brooklyn Hamlet, Brenda tells her real-life story. Her mother was shot and killed by her father and then her father quickly took a new bride, her aunt (her mother’s sister). This is a story about how to find joy and trust again after you’ve lost everything. BRENDA’S MOTTO: From Hamlet: “There is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.”
MARIANA WILLIAMS Author/Producer of Long Beach Searches for Greatest Storyteller, Mariana is vain. Thrifty is one thing–but, how about the risky business of budget plastic surgery. This hilarious true tale is told with candor, giving a shocking look into one doctor’s suburban home/clinic. Instead of an anesthesiologist, she was given a pill for ‘Twilight Sleep.’” She asks, “Well, uh, when do I wake up?” to which Dr. Harlene was very philosophical, “When the time is right.” Mariana’s bravery may not have the epic proportions of Debra and Brenda, but it’s real. MARIANA’S MOTTO: It sucks to be vain AND poor.
