|A GIRL FAR FROM NORMAL
| Open: 11/11/21 Close: 11/14/21
One woman’s comedic and poignant journey of “How to Divide by Two and Remain Whole” OR “How to survive a fatal stab wound to the heart and still make your morning meeting.”
At 53 years old, Robyn is a happily married and devoted wife, quietly proud mother of three, self-assured, and as endearing as they come (think Laura Petri…yes, Dick Van Dyke’s TV wife). She has finally become the woman she always wanted and imagined, when after 32 years of marriage she is emotionally blindsided by her husband’s abrupt, surgical-strike decision to end it. Her perfectly crafted, real-life rom-com world collides head-on with romantic tragedy when her seemingly devoted and happy Captain Von Trapp of a husband gives her the bad news: He wants to take a marriage vacation! Always thinking that people who say “They had no idea their spouse was about to leave” was a myth, Robyn wonders what other myths she’s been telling and, more importantly, believing. She finds herself calling upon her lifetime obsession with the protagonists of her favorite movies. Emulating them, will Robyn figure out how NOT to die from a broken heart?
“Although, I did not intend to be a storyteller, I’m happiest when embracing the personal bonds that come from sharing,” stated Robyn Bishop-Marin. “Writing, to record my memories, I now share these events with you as my way of feeling not so alone in the world.”
