PRLog - Oct. 22, 2012 - CINCINNATI -- October 22, 2012 (Crestview Hills, KY)  Curtis Drake Shepard, of Cincinnati, OH, will perform his sixty-minute one-man show UnMasked for students and faculty at noon on Friday, October 26, 2012 at Thomas More College, Crestview Campus, 333 Thomas More Parkway, Crestview Hills, KY 41017.  Following the performance there will be a talkback with Mr. Shepard at 1:00 p.m.  On Friday, November 2, 2012, Mr. Shepard will also present a creative writing workshop at noon.

Playing all roles himself, Curtis Drake Shepard presents portraits of eight characters whose stories are told with humor, compassion, and brutal honesty. Shepard has performed UnMasked many times for at various venues, including the Chicago Fringe Festival and Cincinnati Fringe Festival.  An extraordinary actor, writer, spoken word artist and story-teller, Shepard has been delighting audiences in the greater Cincinnati, Ohio area for the past twenty-eight years with his unique brand of dramatic story-telling.

His solo performance of UnMasked at the 2008 Cincinnati Fringe garnered this review:
“… An ingenious actor … [Shepard] demonstrates in UnMasked, he is also an ingenious and energizing writer. He has that rare playwright’s knack for imagining a character, then arranging a spare dozen or two words that, when spoken, will ignite into a portrait. Not a caricature, mind you. Not a sketch or a type. A multi-dimensional character.” —Tom McElfresh, Critic’s Pick -Cincinnati Fringe Festival

Says Shepard, “We all wear masks--at work, at home, at the club or on the street, to ignore the homeless or to keep peace when in-laws visit; always the Mask is there.  From abandonment to abuse, to addiction and isolation, to homelessness and dereliction, whatever our struggles, we are never alone. We can peel back the layers, UnMask, and share our humanity.” Says Shepard, "It's important that we UnMask and discover that we're all the same.  We all want to be loved and accepted and respected."
