Cora Values Reads Steamy Romace Literature at the Gas 'n' Gulp

Cora Values gives directions in dating at the diner.

Playwright and performer Sean Owens knows theatrical camp. We think it's safe to say he is theatrical camp. He created and acted out the role of a randy seafarer called Black Dick in Naught but Pirate. He was one of six Southern belle hairdressers in the town of Rectal, Texas, in Stale Magnolias. He staged an encounter between Virginia Woolf and Diane Arbus at Disneyland. He's even impersonated Christopher Walken, for cryin' out loud. (It's no wonder we once called him a mix of Noel Coward and Eddie Izzard.) So if it's anyone we trust to play the proprietress of a highway diner reading excerpts from a steamy romance novel while giving folksy advice on dating, it's Sean Owens.
