The Penitents of MAGDALEN: Erin Layton and Julie Kline with Zack Calhoon
The first time I saw Erin Layton present one of her monologues, she stood in street clothes on an empty stage speaking while very deftly creating the laundry, the sheets, and a wash tub out of thin air. Her simple and elegant physicality brought to life the experience of one struggling woman inside Irelands Magdalene laundries.
