Mounting Washington

Mounting Washington: The Story of a Mountain & a Miracle

Penny: For Your Thoughts (Penny Sterling)

Cincinnati, OH


The true story of a miracle…that almost killed me.

Mounting Washington is a story of improbable events started by improbable circumstances. It’s a story of struggle and triumph, told with the good humor and unflinching honesty expect from a story by Penny Sterling. What’s unexpected, however, is that she’ll be doing this show while pedaling a bike. Yes, really.

Artist Bio

Penny Sterling says serious things in a funny way, and sometimes vice-versa. She’s a storyteller, a comedian, or an actor, depending on who’s asking and why. She’s written & performed solo shows, collaborative shows, TEDx talks, and even a sermon, because she never refuses stage time. When not performing, she lives in a crooked little house in The Rochester neighborhood of Swillburg with Foof the cat, and two ghosts who only speak German.
