    Featuring a memorable intergenerational performance
    Act Your Age!
    Written & performed by Beth Urech


    Decades ago, Beth Urech produced the European premiere of A...My Name is Alice. Then she closed the stage door and created Speak for Yourself, Inc. to help speakers present themselves and their messages with confidence. Beth authored Speaking Globally and worked around the world. In 2003, she shed her corporate blazer to blaze a new life in Chicago. She started writing for herself, and the result is her solo show Act Your Age! which takes the audience on a delightfully crafted, verbally astonishing and heartfelt trip covering her 73 years in autobiographic moments of gentle, hilarious, and sometimes movingly sad drama. Perhaps most importantly, she challenges her audience to adventure into life’s dreams should they have the audacity so to do.
