Liz Cole will again perform readings at the Hoffman Center on Thursday, May 5th at 7 p.m. Called “One Never Knows, Do One?”, she will share stories and poems about surprise, wonder and the unexpected. As always, the material will be rich in both humor and poignancy. Audience members can look forward to an evening of beautiful readings followed by thoughtful conversation.
The Hoffman Center has presented Liz Cole’s Story Time for Grown Ups three times before to enthusiastic audiences.
Liz Cole has had a long acting career on the professional stage, and has also made TV guest-star appearances on Seinfeld, ER, Star Trek, The Practice, Judging Amy, Las Vegas, and many others.
She originated the leading role in Margaret Edson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama Wit in 1995, for which she received the L.A. Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Outstanding Performance. She also tours with “The Wisdom of Wit,” her solo version of the play.
Liz has performed locally for various benefit events (Lower Nehalem Land Trust, Rinehart Clinic, Nehalem Valley Historical Society). She appeared in the original solo play Lost Pioneer, which she developed with Mark Beach and Portland playwright Ellen West. The play, presented seven times in this area, is based on the lives of three women who homesteaded in Tillamook County in the 1890s, and blends biographical data with historical imagination.
