Driving the Saudis: A Chauffeur's Tale of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness on Rodeo Drive

Jayne Amelia Larson’s multi-media one woman play is about the seven weeks she spent as a chauffeur — one of a fleet of chauffeurs — to a visiting contingent of Saudi Arabian royalty in Beverly Hills, California. Larson balances colorful tales of excess with musings on women’s roles and accounts of bad behavior with consideration of the reasons behind it.

Larson is an actress, writer, and independent film producer based in Los Angeles. She has degrees from Cornell University and from Harvard University’s American Repertory Theatre Institute. “Driving the Saudis” has been performed in Memphis, Ithaca, Boston, Roanoke, and Vienna (Austria), and won Best Solo Show at the 2010 New York Fringe International Festival.

Free and open to the public. A Q&A session followed by a book signing will take place after the performance. For more information on this performance, call 702.507.3459.
