NEW! Read about
Elaine's new play, "Skin and Bones" here.
Blanchard, storyteller, actor and writer, has
written a play,
"For Goodness Sake," with David Prete. Based on a true story, Blanchard
and Prete have created a powerful solo
performance showing the effects of oppression
(sexual, religious and racial) on one human
being. The story involves fourteen characters
and Blanchard performs all of the roles. A
compelling performer, Elaine invites the
audience to go with her on a journey of
redemption and transformation.
