The F Trip.
Come along on 3 life-changing trips...from hostels to hunting cabins to holy places, from trailers to tea parties to tricksters, from Taos to Jerusalem and the Pennsylvania mountains in between...in a search to discover what to believe.
See how liars, big holy rocks and pigeon poop can change your life.
An unbelievably autobiographical solo show
Written and Performed by Kim Schultz
Directed by Jay Aubrey
With additional dramaturgy by Avriel Hillman
As a performer, Schultz is tremendously talented and very present—not to mention very funny—and the ease and openness she exudes make you feel like you are re-experiencing her emotional journey in the moment on a very intimate level. As a writer, Schultz uses lots of recurring and evocative thematic imagery and some wonderful turns of phrase, deconstructing everyday language to try to link her experiences together. Overall, the piece moves like a river, swirling rapidly at times and flowing steadily at others, and Schultz and director Jay Aubrey have created a dynamic that is engaging along every twist and turn… The resulting piece is at times moving, often funny, and always engaging.
Fred Backus, NYTheatre.com, 7/25/08
Kim Schultz’s one-person show is like seeing a slide show of a few trips where the slides were not set to play strict chronological order. Memory doesn’t work that way…we are willing to go along for the ride with this wisecracking and sometimes wise woman who is many miles away from home ground, near Holy Ground, sweating, smiling, cursing, laughing, confused, happy, sarcastic, awed. Why? Because she’s so unpretentious and clearly vulnerable behind what’s sometimes a tough shell she wears to protect herself from tough breaks…The play presents Kim as Kim, an instantly likeable lady. The play (she) wrote and performs effectively reminds us, living is the ultimate trip and buying a ticket to see Kim Schultz provides a trip worth the taking in The F Trip…Kim Schultz makes a fine traveling companion: she’s funny, insightful, and often delightful...

After a successful run at the "Zipper Factory Theater" in NYC and several fringe festivals, The F Trip toured colleges nationwide and is looking forward to more trips!

Glibness and Superficial Charm
Manipulative and Conning
They never recognize the rights of others and see their self-serving behaviors as permissible. They appear to be charming, yet are covertly hostile and domineering, seeing their victim as merely an instrument to be used.
