Betsy Kruse Craig is a stage veteran.
Still, her upcoming performance in Invisible Theatre's "The Blonde, the Brunette and the Vengeful Redhead" has got her a wee bit nervous.
You see, she plays all the characters - young, old, male, female, blonde, brunette and redhead.
"The play is intense," admitted Craig.
"It's nothing like I've ever done before. Getting all those words and people straight …"
The play's conceit is this: Rhonda has been married for 17 years when her husband calls her and tells her it's over; he's moved out of the house.
This revelation, and her intent to confront the woman involved with her husband, brings on a catastrophic event.
There are seven characters in the play, and each one has a different take on what happened at that event. Think "Rashomon" on stage and in modern dress.
