PortFringe Award & Canada Bound!

We're extremely pleased to announce that Kara Sevda has earned an award at the PortFringe festival in Maine - a Critics Choice "PortFringe Pulitzer" for Excellence in Writing! 

We had a fabulous time in Maine performing at PortFringe this summer. We feel so lucky to have experienced yet another supportive and talented community of artists and audience members.

As our touring team takes a wee break before heading down to Washington DC for the Capital Fringe Festival, we turn our attention now to our Toronto Fringe Festival team!

The Kara Sevda team have made their way to Virginia, Minnesota and boy are they having a blast! Tierney, William, and Kaija road tripped from Siesta Key, Florida to Minnesota in 3 days - passing through Georgia, Tennesee, Kentucky, Missouri, Iowa - until finally reaching Minnesota! They had a wonderful time making some pit-stops along the way and exploring this gorgeous country!

Now, they're in Minnesota full-time performing at the Lyric Center for the Arts right in downtown Virginia. After a wonderful first weekend - the team spent the week promoting the show - check out this lovely write up in The Mesabi Daily News about the show, the company, and our time at the Lyric. We had just a fantastic time talking with Leah Ryan and we're so grateful to the paper for coming to chat with us!

Kaija, William, and Tierney have also started hosting a PUB QUIZ to promote the show - winners receive tickets to Kara Sevda (and maybe another special treat)! Come grab a beer, try your hand at some trivia, and learn more about the show! Find us at 218 Taphouse at 7PM on Wednesdays - we'd love to see you there!

If you're in Minnesota, don't forget to catch the show EVERY WEEKEND until mid June at they Lyric Center for the Arts (book tickets now!)

Kara Sevda wins Audience Choice @ Ithaca Fringe!


We had an absolutely fantastic time at the Ithaca Fringe Festival this weekend! All three performances were such a blast and we couldn't have asked for a more warm and welcoming audience! Above you'll find a few pictures from our adventures in Ithaca! We loved the community there and getting to see some powerful work from our fellow artists!

Sunday evening we were honored with an Audience Choice award at the festival along with Penny Sterling and her one-woman production, A Spy in the House of Men. We're extremely proud to be taking home our first award for Kara Sevda and we're so thankful to everyone in Ithaca for kicking off this tour with a BANG!

This week, we'll be taking a wee breather before William arrives and we dive into our second round of rehearsals before traveling to Tampa!
