Before the solo shows of Lily Tomlin and Whoopi Goldberg, there was the originator of the "character monologue," Ruth Draper. For 40 years, throughout the world, she performed humorous and touching scenes with great precision, filled with a diverse array of characters from charwomen to divas. Scenes include "A Class in Greek Poise," "At a Telephone Switchboard," and "A Cocktail Party." ELTC is only the second production company - ever - to be allowed to produce this work since Draper. Performers are two ELTC favorites: Karen Case Cook and Suzanne Dawson, under the direction of Gayle Stahlhuth.
