  • Leora Hatchwell @ Writers Theatre!

    You're Being Ridiculous is super excited to present our FUTURE-thmed new show at Writers Theatre on SATURDAY, April 27! AND ... we're delighted to welcome Leora Hatchwell to YBR to share a story with us ... learn a little about Leora here and get your tickets!

    Leora Hatchwell was born in Israel.  Her middle name is Cookie because she was as brown as an oatmeal cookie when she was born.  That she was a girl was a great disappointment to her great-grandfather and her father.  But she thinks she’s turned out pretty well in spite of them.

    what is your current profession?
    Leora Cookie Hatchwell was a food scientist for 25 years, and then a teacher. As a flavor expert, she can tell you what flavor gum you are chewing when you're in the back seat of her car – and, kids, it better not be wintergreen or watermelon!

    what profession other than your own would you like to attempt?
    She has been trying to retire for 20 years and finally might just do it this year. If she succeeds, you’ll find her traveling the country with her husband visiting every tourist trap with the words “World’s Largest” on their billboard. 

    what profession would you NOT like to do?
    At one point, Leora dreamed of studying at the Cordon Bleu and owning a small restaurant on a bike trail in Wisconsin, but she got diverted into science. Now, she thinks that she might have made a great life coach. Her nose is far too sensitive to ever be involved in anything relating to garbage or anything smelly.
