I call myself The Octobabe, which, in ordinary language, means I’m a sassy, sexy 83-year-old woman. I’m living long and loving it!

Victory for the Recycled Virgin, a solo show written and performed by Houston Robertson, is full of surprises – including the age of the performer. Houston grabs you by the heart with all her 78 years as she romps through the fearless and funny episodes of her delayed adolescence. Her opening line “I’ve come here to tell the truth” is the truth. The show radiates with honesty and wit. This solo performance piece was developed with and directed by Mark Kenward, an icon of solo performance in the San Francisco Bay area. He says of Houston, “Houston performs with an engaging presence and riveting energy. She is a force to be enjoyed.”
