40 Seconds to Fringe

by Ottawa Fringe

June 18, 2009

The Oracle has been eagerly poring over the Ottawa Fringe Festival program and it didn’t take us long to find names and faces familiar to west side theatre-goers.

Actors and directors from Hintonburg-staged productions are to be found throughout the festival’s ten-day schedule, and we’re doing our best to corner as many of them as we can. And when we catch up with them, we ask them give us their best short pitch as to why you should see their Fringe production.

Some pitches are very short indeed, but still manage to evoke the unique flavour of the Fringe.

“Squatter Heart” pitch by creator/performer Annie Lefebvre

“Chatroom” pitch by director James Richardson

“No Exit Upstage” pitch by creators/performers Nancy Kenny and Natasha Jetté
