After sold-out shows at Joe’s Pub of her earliest writing, join Nath Ann Carrera for an evening of the most extreme sensationalistic story songs written by Dolly Parton from all eras of her career, featuring her decades-spanning canon of cautionary tales about why you shouldn’t trust men, have children, or get married, in any context whatsoever!
Class-conscious incest! Teen delinquent anti-authoritarian murder! Mental institution imprisonment! Stillborn suicide! No child living unless it’s put up for adoption! A bone thrower who knows your baby will be born dead, but won’t tell! Hitchhiking sex worker orphans! Children bursting into flames while their parents tell dirty jokes! A denounced woman roaming the hills naked and screaming on her dead baby’s grave! A child and dog scrutinizing a house to inexplicably die in! And BEYOND!
With a voice that has been second-hand smoking since the womb and a steadily compelling storytelling arc, you will walk away with a new conception of Dolly Parton’s songwriting and career.
“This was the best show I’ve seen in NYC in years.”- Alexander Chee
Described as "heavenly" (The New York Times) and "wonderful, striking,” with “essayistic songs about female revenge and politics" (Hilton Als, The Paris Review), Nath Ann Carrera has had solo shows at Joe's Pub, Wild Project, and the Afterglow Festival (‘I Don't Want To Throw Rice, I Want To Throw Rocks: The Early Southern Gothicism Of Dolly Parton’), La MaMa (‘Death To The Patriarchal Rape Heads’), sings as WITCH CAMP with Amber Martin, performs with Justin Vivian Bond, opened for Martha Wainwright at City Winery, and has sung at P.S. 122, The Kitchen, Abrons Arts Center, Le Poisson Rouge, SFMOMA, MoMA PS1, Lincoln Center, and The Kennedy Center, as part of Joe’s Pub’s ‘What’s Your Safe Word?’
