Two solo performers weave one-act stories in Women of Their Word. Actor and public radio host Vivian Nesbitt performs "The Bark & The Tree," about finding identity through legacy. Lynn C. Miller, the creator of several one-woman shows about famous female writers, acts in "Saved by Gertrude Stein." The piece chronicles the creative journey she took while playing Stein. Check the ladies out at The Kosmos (1715 Fifth Street NW,) on May 21 and 22, at 3 p.m.
