Join Lorna Lable for a fun fictional two person show about Emma Goldman meeting Mary Wollstonecraft in the afterlife.  A fun battle of of words and theories ensues.

Lorna Lable (playwright/performer Emma Goldman) performed her one-woman show, The Door is Mine, a positive look at divorce, along the East Coast from Vermont to Pennsylvania. Her film credits include The Wiz and Keeping the Faith with Ben Stiller. Her commercials run the gamut from selling hams to phones.  Lorna’s enjoyed working on all NYC-based soaps from Edge of Night to All My Children and all the versions of Law & Order. She also acted as Helga in Grandma Sylvia’s Funeral at the Soho Theatre and as Mrs. Bendle in Not in Our Town at Manhattan Theatre Club, as well as in other shows in the NYC area.
