Michelle Myers Berg portrays dozens of unforgettable characters that drifted through her working class neighborhood in the 60’s and 70’s. Their personal stories go far beyond the names that are stitched above their left breast pockets. Come and join her as she celebrates the glories and indignities of being in the middle of a large family, in an even larger neighborhood, with people who were definitely larger than life! This original one woman show features stories that will make you laugh and cry and truly appreciate the countless people whose greatest assets were not tucked in a bank vault or a lavish home, but were instead poured into the modest streets and houses they lived in everyday.
