Supporting Act(s): Lisa Jane Persky

During the 2016 Mission Creek Festival, the writer, actress and photographer Lisa Jane Persky will give a reading, writing workshop, film screening, and artist talk centered around her photography show X-Offenders: A Year in the Life of a Proto-Punk (1976), at the Englert Theatre’s Douglas & Linda Paul Gallery.


Lisa Jane Persky has had many memorable roles in films such as When Harry Met Sally, The Cotton Club and The Big Easy, but her most absurd dramatic turn was playing Dirty Dee in 1978’s Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park — where a mad scientist replaces Kiss with animatronic impostors bent on wreaking havoc. Lisa Jane Persky will introduce the film.
