AT YOUR SERVICE: Advice From A Woman Who Knows Better
Written and Performed by Tulis McCall
Directed by Austin Pendleton
Award-winning wit, wag, and piquant observer of life's mysterious ways, Tulis McCall has lived long enough to have a fist full of opinions and life hacks to share with anyone within earshot. The hour glass is suspiciously full on the bottom, and McCall is looking through the nuggets drifting about on the top. McCall sets her sites on the greatest mystery of all: the conveyor belt of life and our place in the line-up.
