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!

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!

Rehearsals are Well Underway!

We've been in rehearsals for the last week and a half for the upcoming Amercian premiere of Kara Sevda, performing at the Ithaca Fringe Festival from April 21st - 23rd! It's so wonderful to be up on our feet exploring the latest version of Lisa's brilliant play. Our stage manager, Kaija, is currently road-tripping to New York City from Minnesota - so it's all hands on deck for the Now What Theatre crew! 

We've also updated the TOUR page with the most up to date information regarding the entire Kara Sevda summer tour, make sure to check out when we'll be heading to your neighbourhood! Many of the festivals have opened their booking, grab your tickets now before the sell-out! ;)

In exactly one week we'll be in Ithaca preparing for our first show of the tour, we hope to see you there (or somewhere this summer)! 

Cheers, the entire NWT crew! x
