Strangers in the Night

Laura, a long-legged blond in her early 30's, is a professional escort. But her clients are not high- rolling businessmen looking for a night on the town. They're troubled teenagers on their way to wilderness camps, residential treatment centers and therapeutic boarding schools.

Laura's job is to "deliver the package," not an easy task when the package is usually an out-of-control flight risk. Laura and her colleagues are known in the trade as "friendly guerrillas," but I call them "strangers in the night," because they often pluck unsuspecting, slumbering teens from their beds in the wee hours of the night.

Come and hear me read from "Strangers in the Night," a work in progress about our painful and personal decision to use the services of an escort service. It may not be in its most "finished" state, but I promise that it won't be boring.

WHAT: Gorgeous Stories - Brave, moving and often hilarious new work from Terrie Silverman's Creative Rites workshops

WHEN: Friday, March 14, 7:30 to 9:00 pm

WHERE: Parish Hall

Church of the Angels
1100 N. Avenue 64
Pasadena, CA 91105

ADMISSION: Only $8 and includes a free pot-luck following the show

From Surface Streets in Pasadena:
Take Colorado Blvd. west of Old Pasadena. Make a left on Melrose. You'll see a white stone tower with a clock and "Cornerstone Chiropractic." At the stop sign turn slight left onto Avenue 64 and continue approximately five minutes. Make a left on Church St. at a stop sign. Go uphill barely half a block and make the first right turn into the parking area. The Parish Hall is a one-story Tudor-style building on the right.

From the Pasadena Freeway:
Take the Marmion Way exit and make a slight left to take the ramp toward AVE 64/ YORK BL. Turn left on Marmion Way. Marmion Way becomes Ave. 64. When you see the church set back on the hill, make a left turn on Church St. Go up a slight hill and make an immediate right turn into the parking area. The Parish Hall is a one-story, Tudor-style building on the right side.

Do NOT park in the "Van Only" slots which are immediately on your left once you turn right into the parking area. The parish hall where we perform is a white building to the right with brown trim. There are a couple of spots in front of the hall, and as you continue there is a larger area to the right with more ample parking.

QUESTIONS: Email me at if you have any other questions.

I hope to see you on Friday!
