June 13: Reece Cotton Features at Stone Soup

Stone Soup Poetry meets every Monday from 7-9 p.m. every Monday at the Out of The Blue Art Gallery, now at its new location at 541 Massachusetts Avenue in Central Square Cambridge, Massachusetts. On June 13, we take a different spin on tonight's performance and introduce comic Reece Cotton.

Boston native and Tufts University alumna Reece Cotton is a comedian that connects very well with her audience and jokes about her most controversial experiences. Reece brings humor to her struggles with managing bipolar disorder, growing up as the gay daughter of a Baptist pastor, and avoiding confrontations while attending classes in Chinatown (aka "The Combat Zone"). Reece also reflects on the awkward social interactions that often stem from having the last name "Cotton" and being of African American descent. Reece enjoys joking about current events, dog ownership, and the ironies that shadow our everyday lives.
