This clip is from the first performance of "The Widow Wears Red Pajamas" at Bard College at Simon's Rock on June 21, 2009.
"The Widow Wears Red Pajamas" is a one hour monologue, part memoir, part love story, part helpful how-to information performed by Billie Best. She shares her experience caring for her dying husband and reflects on her own death. Poignant and occasionally quite funny, "The Widow Wears Red Pajamas" is illuminated by exquisite photographs of Best's husband taken before and after his death by documentary photographer, Jason Houston (http://www.jasonhouston.com).
The performance piece is based on "Dying Beautifully," the very short fine art book created by Best and Houston, to commemorate Chet's 55th birthday, June 21, 2009.
