Heidi Arneson bares more than
just her soul in her one-woman show
“The Brunette Breck Girl”- she bares
her entire body.
Using some of the actress’ own
childhood experiences, Arneson’s
play revolves around a family dis

The main character in the play
lives chained in the walls of a subur
ban household. Her character, along
with the nine other characters that
Arneson plays, are nude throughout
the entire play.
Arneson said she hopes the audi
ence can adapt to the nudity.
“I fear that the audience feels that
they can’t laugh, “ Arneson said.
“They don’t have to figure it out, just
sit back and enjoy it.”
Break these chains
This the first time she has taken
the show outside Minneapolis, where
she currently lives. She performed
“The Brunette Breck Girl” in its
entirety five times before bringing
the show to Lincoln.

the charity event, Kraeger said she
was optimistic about today’s turnout.
