Storyline

Adapted from the group of stage monologues by the pseudononymous "Jane Martin," this is a series of characters snake handler, daughter, baton twirler, washed-up rodeo cowgirl, tattoed woman, and older woman in the twilight of her years talking with us about their experiences, in the poetic language that Jane Martin is known for bringing to all her stage characters. Kathy Bates does a wonderful job of translating these dead-on characters (talking directly to camera) from stage to television screen, and television turns out to be the perfect medium for these challenging figures. "Jane Martin" first came to prominence at the prestigious Louisville-based Humana Theatre Festival it was recently revealed that "she" is none other than the Festival's artistic director, Jon Jory. Written by Kenn-15

Um, OK
8 December 2004 | by (Austin, Tx) – See all my reviews

So anyway, I have seen this and the acting is excellent, but i would also like to note that I too am now in and soon to perform this exact play (as Big Eight), the pieces, are great some more so than others, they are compelling and beautiful, just because they were written by a man does not mean they could not be well written.

Clear Glass Marbles is excellent,I happen to what it is like to lose a parent, and the piece very well depicts the emotions. Marks is a very new and thought provoking piece. I am only saying this so that people will not read the other comment and get the wrong idea, their opinion is completely valid but their comment is quite biased.
