Los Angeles

Explore environmental icon Rachel Carson’s nature in this wildly inventive solo show from fellow Pittsburgher Elise Robertson, who uses puppets, found objects, and stage wizardry to interweave her own messy coming-of-age with Rachel’s, as they struggle with their identities as artists, mothers, and truth-tellers. Performed live in the Edinburgh Fringe 2022 season.
