HICK: A Love Story ~ The Romance of Lorena Hickok & Eleanor Roosevelt.
​HICK is a solo play starring  Terry Baum and directed by Carolyn Myers.  The dialog in this play is taken almost exclusively from existing letters between the first lady and her lover, an outspoken female reporter, Lorena Hickok. HICK was selected to be part of the 2015 New York Fringe Festival.  It was such a huge success
and fan favorite, that the Fringe Festival asked if HICK would extend their run to be part  their Encore Series held at off Broadway theaters.

We are delighted to announce the selection of  “Awaiting the Podiatrist
​for the San Francisco Fringe Festival, September 9 – 24.

In Awaiting the Podiatrist,” a slightly world-renowned lesbian playwright finds herself in a room in Intensive Care, caught between her comatose father and her terminally irritating mother. Should Mom and Alex pull the plug on Dad? If not, who will cut his monstrous toenails? A near-life experience brought to you by modern medicine. “PODIATRIST speaks to anyone who’s ever had parents.”      
– SF Chronicle

Awaiting the Podiatristis a solo play with music, written and performed by Terry Baum, with music by Scrumbly Koldewyn and David Hyman, additional music by

Returning to San Francisco from the run of HICK in New York City and Baltimore, no sooner did they unpack their bags, Terry & Carolyn then turned around and ​headed south to begin their first tour of MEXICO!!!  Turns out, translating "Crackpot Crones" into Spanish posed a a problem, so "LAS RUCAS LOCAS" was born!
