Faith Salie has returned home to Georgia to perform this stage adaptation of her memoir – a collection of thoughtfully irreverent and honest essays. Salie shares heartfelt and hilarious stories that look back on a lifetime of searching for validation, from winning her high school beauty pageant to picking the perfect outfit to wear to her divorce. When not performing on stage, Salie is a comedian and Emmy Award-winning journalist best known for her roles on NPR’s “Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!” and CBS News Sunday Morning. In this witty, candid, and sometimes heartbreaking performance, Salie’s descriptions of looking for approval in all the wrong places ultimately reveals how she finally pleased her toughest critic – herself.
