Minnesota Fringe Festival 2020: "Edith vs. Quarantine: 89 & One Tough Cookie"

Location: Nightly Fringe (Aug. 5)

Length: 35 minutes

Title: Edith vs. Quarantine: 89 & One Tough Cookie

By: Amanda Erin Miller

Summary: A live zoom call with a bored octogenarian.

Highlights: Amanda Erin Miller plays Edith, staying in character throughout the call. The character being one of those fabulous women of a certain age. She shares with us how she's been keeping busy in quarantine (with a montage of recorded scenes) - from the usual things like baking, reading, and eating, to the less usual things, like acting out her favorite shows Julius Caesar and Into the Woods, and starting a dating app for seniors. It's fun and silly and relatable, with a positive message of  "we can handle more than we think" and "stay connected to the things we love." Wise words from a wise woman.
