Meet our readers: Diana Slickman

I first had the pleasure of seeing our next reader at a 2011 performance of There Is a Happiness That Morning Is, and she blew me away. I’m so geeked to have her reading at That’s All She Wrote.

Diana Slickman has been a writer, performer, producer, director, and administrator in Chicago theater for nearly three decades. Since 2003 she has been a Theater Oobleck ensemble member and has appeared in seven of their shows, most recently Mickle Maher’s There Is a Happiness That Morning Is. She’s also a member of BoyGirlBoyGirl, a group solo performance ensemble with whom she has created eleven shows based on found text including last fall’s Phenomena of Materialisation. Diana performs her own writing at various live lit shows around town including Essay Fiesta, Write Club, The Encyclopedia Show, Paper Machete, and Guts and Glory. A ‘90s vintage Neo-Futurist, she performed in Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind for eight years and collaborated on several prime time productions there. Most recently she appeared in the world premier of Breach by Egan Reich with Dog and Pony Theater Co.

Come to The Savoy on Sunday, March 9th and see Diana perform. Stories start at 8pm, come earlier for dinner. Reservations recommended.
