VALLEY STORY (A 40TH ANNIVERSARY SERIES)
But these breaks with Ohio History at the Health Museum were not permanent breaks with our roots. In 1985, we re-created the Medicine Man scenario for the Canal Society Of Ohio back where we began -- at the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area for their 10th Anniversary. In 1991, we travelled to the Western Reserve Historical Society for a performance there which ended in their beautiful garden. In both of these presentations our Medicine Man was Rod Knight, our schill was Barb Knight and our Drunken Corpse, Michael OReilly was Michael Higgins.
The Historical Society program
was memorable for another favorite story. As Michael OReilly wandered
through the museum with his whisky jug and love apple, telling
everyone his tale of woe and threatening to kill himself with the deadly
tomato, one of the audience women reported to the security guard that
there was a drunk wandering the halls and threatening to commit suicide!
He had to explain to her that it was part of the show.
