Arts Fair, Toronto, and at Rosenberg Kaufman Fine Arts, New York City.
It was then performed as a work-in-progress at the Wisconsin Humanities
Festival, at the Poetry Center in Chicago, at Gloucester County College
in New Jersey, and at Pratt Institute in New York City. 2003 performances
included the McManus Theatre, London, Ontario, and The Cathedral of St.
John the Divine, New York City. In 2005 The Shimmering Verge production
joined two other one-woman shows, Jazzabel and Nona, for
a touring mini-festival of one-woman shows by established women artists
who are taking their art into theatre for the first time. The Festival
was produced by Femme Fatale Productions. The first stop for Portraits:
A Festival of One-Woman Shows was the opening of the Alice Neel and
May Stevens shows at the National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington,
DC. Molly performed The Shimmering Verge in February 2006 at Urban Stages in New York City, and in September 2006 at the University
of the South in Sewanee, Tennessee.
