You Are Reminded That Your Safety is Your Own Responsibility

Playing Saturday April 22nd & 29th at 7:00 PM.
Tickets are $8 advance, $10 door.

Misadventures, near-calamities and brushes with death—all true, all hilarious, and all of which fill the listener with wonder… as in, “I wonder how any of us survives?”

Encounters with wildlife and nature’s fury, with human predators, bullies and psychopaths, and with (perhaps the most daunting of all forces) the fearful Self all unfold set in landscapes of the American West and in small towns and major cities around the world. Goodwin looks for and ultimately finds meaning and a sense of belonging (if not security) in human relationships, in stories—and in an acceptance of time, physics, and other comfortingly familiar, observable phenomena and processes.
