is proof that life can get better with age. A story of coming of age in midlife. Barbara was married at 21 as a virgin. At 43 she started a new life after her husband confessed he was gay and he started dating in San Francisco. Saying her life changed is an understatement. As her life changed she started using her middle name Houston which she still uses today. Now 79 years young, wish her a Happy 80th Birthday on Tuesday, August, 23. Don’t let her age fool you. She can keep up with any performer no matter what their age. Houston considers herself an age advantaged woman and sometimes a take charge bitch.
Victory for the Recycled Virgin
Recommended for anyone whose life has not always gone as planned.
So what do you do when you are 43, divorced and single in the 1050’s, a time when women’s primary degree was an MRS? The irony was that she was active in Human rights and even gay lesbian rights at a time when most people in our country were not. That did not mean she had an easy time coping with hew husband’s sexuality. Although active in her community, she still only held the position of secretary even after obtaining her master’s degree.
How do you go from a virgin bride to a wise witty and yes, sexually active independent woman full of surprises? Come see Victory for the Recycled Virgin and find out.
Her story telling is well planned and keeps us moving with unexpected turns and twists as she tells of bourbon, sex and clowning and much more. Just wait till you hear her plans for her 100th birthday!
Come join Houston Robertson at one of her remaining three performances at the Indy Eleven Theater.
