Storyline

Adapted from the group of stage monologues by the pseudononymous "Jane Martin," this is a series of characters snake handler, daughter, baton twirler, washed-up rodeo cowgirl, tattoed woman, and older woman in the twilight of her years talking with us about their experiences, in the poetic language that Jane Martin is known for bringing to all her stage characters. Kathy Bates does a wonderful job of translating these dead-on characters (talking directly to camera) from stage to television screen, and television turns out to be the perfect medium for these challenging figures. "Jane Martin" first came to prominence at the prestigious Louisville-based Humana Theatre Festival it was recently revealed that "she" is none other than the Festival's artistic director, Jon Jory. Written by Kenn-15

Well geez...
1 June 2004 | by anythinggoesSee all my reviews

I had no idea that there was a television version of this... this. As one can guess, I haven't seen it, but I did perform in it a while back. I was the washed-up rodeo cowgirl, as Kenn-15 so eloquently put it. And as there are no comments, I feel it my duty to tell what I know.

The monologues... are fairly bad, and, though I'm not really a feminist, I was relieved to find out that Jane Martin isn't a woman. I, as well as most anyone else, trust all of the actresses on the cast list.

So, at least the acting will be good. PS- Talking with reminds me a lot of Working. So if you like that kind of thing, you'll probably like this.
