TALKING WITH…

It’s the last week to see this extraordinary show!

August 14th-17th 

7:30PM Showings Thursday – Saturday

2:00PM Showings Sunday

Hear their stories, listen to their lives…

Meet a rodeo girl, a lady giving birth, a snake handler, and even a woman who wants to live at McDonalds! 


This winner of the American Theatre Critics Association Award boasts an extraordinary series of monologues dealing with the personal ordeals of eleven compelling female characters. From the very comical to the intensely emotional, each scene features a unique and often inspiring perspective that is shared with great insight, sensitivity and joy!


“Even though the women are alone on stage, they don’t look lost in the space. In fact we feel close to them, which is surprising in the large theater.” 

Jay Handelman, Sarasota Herald Tribune


“Nothing gets in the way of your close encounter with these odd characters. Even though Martin may not be real, these characters are.”
Marty Fugate, Longboat Key Observer

Life-changing events hurl a mother and her son into the unexpected. High School senior, star athlete and popular, 17 year old Billy Hayman’s actions forever change many lives – most profoundly his mother’s. With pathos, humor and understanding, “That Wasn’t Me” brings a highly sensitive issue onto The Players Stage and explores its effects.
