From the press release written by director Ian W. Hill   Gemini CollisionWorks and The Brick Theater, Inc. present: My First Autograce Homeography (1973-1974) by Julia Lee Barclay-Morton   designed and directed by Ian W. Hill assisted by Berit Johnson   performed by: John Amir, David Arthur Bachrach*, Olivia Jane Baseman*, Derrick Peterson*, Alyssa Simon*, and Stephanie Willing *Appearing courtesy of Actors’ Equity Association   Terror and repression. The exorcism frenzy. A year in a life, 40 years ago, in sound, image, and movements, with the power, certainty, and translucence of memory. Knives, AM radio, a caretaker gone mad, the backseats of big American cars, a bionic man, resignation. Shake hands with Captain Howdy, Patricia.   Award-winning writer Julia Lee Barclay-Morton looks back on her own life, and cuts it up into a suggestive, abstract collage of splintered memories. Designer/director Ian W. Hill connects the pieces in a complex web of music, film, and movement. Together, through a fog of memory and pop culture, the story of a young girl trying to form an identity when her authority figures can’t hang onto their own.   The radio dial spins. The waves bounce off the atmosphere and come down, mixing with each other. The Six Million Dollar Man looks for the kidnapped heiress. 50 of your favorite AM Radio hits, all in this new new compilation! “By taking this action, I hope that I will have hastened the start of that process of healing which is so desperately needed in America.” But wait, there’s more…   90 minutes
