From the Heartland premiered on Theater Row in the 2017 United Solo Festival, the world’s largest solo theatre festival. It was then presented at Dixon Place and it set to return in 2020 with the NY Fringe and this time Alexis Loretta Lynn James is running for president!
Yes, there’s Trump and Biden and de Blasio and Elizabeth Warren, but there is one candidate running that you might not of met yet…she’s a woman of the people, with a passion that sometimes goes awry, but man oh man can she bake. Her politics are not just cherry, nor are they blueberry, she’s apple pie through and through. So come out, grab a slice, and let her tell you where she’s come from to be here with y’all right now, today. And you can decide what your 2020 is going to taste like.
A shocking crime story or a hilariously serious analysis of our values and ideologies? Up from Union, Missouri comes a woman on a mission to heal the nation, society, and faith in justice. Alexis James knows what she’s talking about. She has been exploited, humiliated and screwed over for a long time — now she insists on payback. And yes there will be pie.
