Every night, an untouchable woman walks into the bar, and she always, always, always leaves alone. Men fall over themselves for a shot at her, but it’s a woman from the past who drags the god back to the earth, the place where we all eat dirt.

She Gets Naked in the End requires three versatile actors. “She” (aka Elle) plays herself at various ages; Alex plays several characters and ages, including Elle’s mother. “He” plays about ten terrible men and couple good ones.

    She Gets Naked in the End is a piece that is strikingly raw and poetic. It has a keen sense of place throughout, and has an unshakeable Americana-type quality. The script provides three very meaty, substantial roles for three versatile, capable actors. Ranging from endearing to funny to infuriating to disturbing, the emotional impact of this piece lingers long after you finish reading it. Oglesby has a good handle on stark imagery and deep characterization.
