Wellesley College Theatre presents Unaccustomed to my Name, written and performed by Marta Rainer, a Wellesley College alum and Polish-American former Russian Lit major, who happened to write a play about a Polish-American former Russian Lit major.
Unaccustomed to My Name tells the story of bookish Sofie, who is experiencing a mid-life crisis – at age 21 – with no clue as to how to handle it! Stuck in Warsaw, New York, with her maddeningly motivating mother, she hides in the bathroom and contemplates her life – until she creates Sonya, the saucy Siberian émigré who spends her evenings in bars, drinking Bloody Mary’s and rejecting unlucky suitors. With this exciting alter ego (and her new poetry professor beau), Sofie suddenly has a new lease on life – but how long will it be before her lies catch up with her? This bittersweet comedy is a story for anyone who has ever wanted to change his or her life but hasn’t known where to start.
