Erika Ritter is a radio broadcaster, playwright, novelist, essayist. social observer—and incurable on- stage performer. The thread that draws together these pursuits is her lifelong belief in humour as salvation in all human interactions, her keen interest in what the spoken word does and does not reveal about all of us, and the straightforward pleasure of live performance. The comedy inherent in women’s relationships with men—and other animals—is a key component not only of her writing, but of her onstage life.
