August 26-30: Tina Teeninga's THE SADDEST GIRL IN THE WORLD

It's here! Tina Teeninga's one-woman-show has been really well received on its Fringe Festival tour, and now it's playing Vancouver in the time leading up to our Fringe Festival here. (Just to be clear, it' won't be running in Vancouver's Fest, so this week is your chance.)

You'll remember the shows Tina penned during her apprenticeship at Pacific Theatre: Broken Things, Normal, and River Bottom Baby all played on our stage as apprentice showcase / Stones Throw productions. She's also at work on a full length play that she first presented as part of our Rosedale Writers Week, and you saw her as Max and the work camp boss in REMNANTS (A FABLE).

Move fast; opening night is already sold out, and Wednesday is darn near full!

Separated from everyone she knows. Haunted by a bloody past. Natya believes Canada is the beginning of a new life. Canada harbours dirty secrets of its own, however, and Natya must face personal demons in a fight to survive. Natya’s one possible ally is Ava: an innocent woman she has never met, whose dreams of jewels glimmer with hope.

When: August 26-30th, Tuesday – Saturday at 8 pm. Sat mat at 2 pm
Where: Carousel Theatre’s Studio Space, 1411 Cartwright Street
Tickets: $10 (GST incl). To reserve call 604-269-0763, or visit saddestgirl.com
