Our Eyes Are Fixed On: Rhoni Golden


She can handle any shit the world throws her way. And next week Rhoni Golden will take the Oral Fixation stage, using her poop-filled tales to spread some honest to goodness autism awareness in “Writing On The Wall.”

Rhoni Golden lives in Lakewood, where life is never dull. She shares her house with a husband, three children, two dogs and two hermit crabs. Four years ago, she traded in her job as a physical therapist to become an advocate for her son. She owes her sanity to yoga and a good attitude.

Please join The Wild Detectives in welcoming Oral Fixation (An Obsession with True Life Tales), Dallas’ buzzy live storytelling series, to Oak Cliff for a special intimate Meet & Greet event on Wednesday, March 11th from 7:30-9p.m.!

Storytellers include:

  • Haven Abedin, who reveals the kindness of strangers after her ailing mother takes a terrible fall.
  • Phillip Morales,  who credits a childhood fight with his discovering his passion for words.
  • R. Jane Hardin, who takes us back to 1968 when an unplanned pregnancy turned into domestic violence.

Creator Nicole Stewart will be in attendance with the cast of storytellers before their March 16th & 25th “Writing On The Wall” shows.

“Two Peas In A Pod” featuring Trish Batson

Theme: “Two Peas In A Pod”
Storyteller: Trish Batson

The hilarious and fierce Trish Batson introduced the Oral Fixation audience to her two personalities: “Black Trish” and “White Trish.” After her behavior during an argument at work led to unshakable repercussions — including being passed on by co-workers for promotions she deserved — Trish humbly learned how to balance both sides of her personality. Eventually, Trish managed to strike the perfect balance between harnessing her emotions while remaining true to herself.
