Beware, she's loose!!!

Mark 'Mom' Finley presents new one-man show and art installation one night only June 8

'MOM'S MUSEUM:
A QUEER LIFE IN RETROSPECT'
& 'SOMEONE GET ME A CHAINSAW!'
INARTSNW
Thursday, June 8 - 6pm to 10pm


It's been about a decade since Mark 'Mom' Finley tried to make a comeback; at least 2 decades since she's done a new live show; and she's been stuck in this damn town for nearly 3 - wasn't she supposed to be dead by now?!?! Thanks to the wonderful people at INArtsNW (1633 17th Ave, Seattle, WA 98122) Seattle Theatre & Drag Icon Mark 'Mom' Finley is doing a one night only new live show for PRIDE during the Capitol Hill Art Walk - Thursday, June 8 from 6pm to 10pm. 'Mom's Museum: A Queer Life in Retrospect' will be the first public installation of Finley's unique artwork, along with some of his crazy haute couture costumes on display in the venue's lobby and gallery spaces. There will be 'Docent Tours' of the installation at 6:30pm and 8:30pm led by noted Finley Historian, Beatrice Verna Louise Davis of the Wandering Gypsy Mobile Estates.

If that wasn't enough - in the black box theatre downstairs Mark will be holding audiences hostage with a chainsaw at 7pm & 9pm for his world premiere new one man show 'Someone Get Me A Chainsaw!' The evening promises to be full of Finley's unbelievable stories, funny songs, classic performances, and maybe even some piano playing!! As the 'script' will be pulled out of a button bag live during the performance, she won't know what she's performing until that minute! And you wonder why she wants the chainsaw!

Finley is excited to be back onstage again. In October of '92 New City Theatre produced his third one-man show in a row 'Life Lessons' where he held each audience hostage at gun point (unloaded, of course), had them choose 12 pieces of paper out of a bag with 170 possible stories, numbers, acts, etc. He said at the time that he was telling his life story whether people wanted to hear it or not because he didn't know how long he'd be around.

Thanks to wonderful doctors and new medicines he's quite healthy and doesn't seem to be going anywhere. The past show focused mainly on Finley's early life growing up in a small town, traveling the world to follow his dreams only to have it deal him what, at the time, was a losing hand and ending up in Seattle. This new show will cover the past 25 years of his life living in Seattle: everything - the ups and downs - the scandals - the successes - and the surprise that changed his life!

Please join us for this one night only event! And hey - it's free!! Sure they ask for a donation - but they won't kick you out if you don't have anything!! Come see what Seattle LGBTQI+ Community's original 'Mom' - Mark Finley - has to say! You know it's going to be juicy!!
