Next weekend, on Sunday, Oct. 28, Ann Randolph will perform her one-woman show Loveland at the Katharine Cornell Theatre in Vineyard Haven. Ms. Randolph was once a member of the Groundlings in Los Angeles with Will Ferrell and was perhaps headed to Saturday Night Live, too, but her desire to perform and write her own shows led her down a different path. She has created a number of one-woman shows, including the award-winning Squeeze Box which was produced by Mel Brooks and Ann Bancroft. A movie version of the show is in development. She was also named best solo performer of San Francisco 2010 by San Francisco Weekly.

But Ms. Randolph’s performance is not the only draw next weekend. She will also offer a Write Your Life workshop on Saturday, Oct. 27 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and continuing Sunday from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Participants will learn to write their own stories through improvisation, writing exercises and group discussion. All levels are welcome.
