WHEN I AM OLD WOMAN I SHALL WEAR PURPLE

by | Read by Ellen Burstyn & CCH Pounder

Personal Growth • 3 hrs. • Anthology • © 1987

The difficulties and challenges that old age presents are discussed in a series of poems and stories. This award-winning anthology contains material selected from thousands of submitted manuscripts. Ellen Burstyn has the remarkable ability to transform herself from child to old woman in the blink of an eye. Every word she speaks conjures vivid images. The listener will break into laughter as Burstyn interprets anecdotes about eccentric friendships and senior citizen love affairs. CCH Pounder's performances overflow with compassion, humor and insight as she breathes life into the colorful characters. She entertains with a unique style of sarcasm, humor and empathy, provoking laughter, tears and compassion. These two talented women perform from the heart, revealing and respecting the realities of growing older. B.J.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV/DEC 97]
