We're very pleased to share our latest review from EdFringe Review! Make sure to check out the entire article below!

⭐⭐⭐⭐ - From the EdFringe Review:

“Lisa VillaMil manages write raw human feeling with passion and insight; and only two such fine actors could help her pull it off.”

— HELENA SNIDER, Edinburgh Fringe Review

“The real highlight of this show was the acting. Tierney Nolen and William Foote, the respective actors, are utterly engaging and committed to their roles.”

— HELENA SNIDER, Edinburgh Fringe Review

We're extremely proud to be entering our THIRD and FINAL week of performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. If you haven't already, make sure you book your tickets before the show is GONE this Saturday!

EdFringe: Week ONE!

We've done it! Week one is COMPLETE! Our time in Edinburgh is already flying by so quickly and we're immensely grateful to everyone who has made their way to Greenside Venues to see our little play! The feedback has been overwhelming and we couldn't be more proud!

Ever wonder how we get those posters so high? Royal Mile acrobatics from our actors - Tierney & William!

If you've seen the show, make sure you SPREAD THE WORD! That's the best way to build momentum and make sure you leave us a review on the EdFringe Website; we'd really love to hear from you! The team is enjoying a much deserved day off (HAPPY SUNDAY) before heading into WEEK TWO of the festival! That means many cups of tea, lots of football watching, and maybe even a cheeky brunch! We'll be back on the Royal Mile tomorrow, and if you haven't already make sure you book your tickets for KARA SEVDA!

We perform EVERY DAY (bar Sundays) at 10PM!

We couldn't be more excited to finally be here at the Edinburgh Fringe - the biggest fringe festival in the world. For all of us, it feels like returning home. This is where Kara Sevda got its start, where our company was built, and where everyone in the Now What cohort met. Returning to Scotland is such a treat and we're honoured to be here.

Kara Sevda has performed in our first preview but we've still got THREE WEEKS left of shows! Make sure you add us to your fringe schedule and book your tickets soon (here)! TONIGHT, our final preview - tickets are only £7! And if you book for MONDAY (Aug 7) or TUESDAY (Aug 8) you'll get the fabulous TWO FOR ONE deal! 

We perform MONDAY thru SATURDAY at 10PM in Mint Studio at Greenside Venues (right off Infirmary Street) - we can't wait to see you there!

Goodbye North America!

And thus ends our FINAL U.S. festival! Thank you to the entire Capital Fringe community!

FIVE STARS & Best of the Fringe

Congratulations to the entire NOW WHAT Theatre team for their ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Review & BEST OF THE FRINGE from DC Metro Theatre Arts:

Lisa VillaMil’s Kara Sevda (at Shopkeepers through July 22) is an exhilarating piece of theater, masterfully and assuredly directed by Kat Haan, beautifully acted by Tierney Nolen and William Foote, thoroughly realized in this Now What Theatre production, and you should see it. It is the best thing I’ve experienced at Fringe so far. It is the best play I’ve seen this year.
— MIKE BEVEL, DC Metro Theater Arts

We are overjoyed to have received this gorgeous review ("love letter") to our show and we hope you'll snag a ticket to come to see one of our LAST THREE SHOWS in the states before heading off to EdFringe! SO, book your tickets now before we fly off across the ocean! 

xx, NWT Team

Surprise Review!

We're so excited to present a review from our time at Ithaca Fringe Festival in April:

The writing is vivid and evokes a terrifying, all-too-believable world; the acting is truthful and detailed; the direction is focused; and the sound design is both subtle and affecting. See it if you can.
— Amina Omari

Check out the entire review here, for an insightful and lovely look into the world of the play (but beware of minor spoilers). And if you're still in Portland catch our FINAL SHOW of Kara Sevda at PortFringe TONIGHT at 9:15pm!

Fantastic pre-show shot taken by audience member @TBBackus!
