In March 2017, Team OMF Hero, ME activist and theater director Bobbi Ausubel, age 80, produced the play Bold Women, Brazen Acts as a fundraiser for OMF. Co-written by Bobbi and ME activist Rivka Solomon, the play is a collection of true stories of women’s courageous and daring deeds. Especially exciting, Bobbi’s sold out performances, held at a senior community in California, not only raised $2000 but also raised awareness about ME.
The play was adapted for the stage from Rivka’s book That Takes Ovaries!: Bold Females and Their Brazen Acts with the same women’s empowerment theme. The full play, or excerpts of it, have been performed at over 1000 events celebrating women around the U.S. and globe.
Both the book and play include true stories of ME / CFS courage. The special thing about Bobbi’s production of the play? For the first time, an actress with ME / CFS performs the scene about living with ME / CFS.
