COLLAPSE’s Annie Fitzpatrick Earns League of Cincinnati Theatres Award at Know Theatre

(CINCINNATI, FEB. 8, 2012)– Annie Fitzpatrick has earned an award as leading actress in a play from the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) for her role as Hannah in Know Theatre of Cincinnati’s regional premiere of Allison Moore’s COLLAPSE.

Fitzpatrick portrays a woman whose life is falling apart following the 2007 Mississippi River Bridge collapse in Minneapolis. Her husband, who drove off the bridge, is suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, and Hannah finds herself on the brink of losing her job, unable to get pregnant and struggling with a visit by her flaky sister. Know Theatre describes the show as “an uncomfortably funny exploration of the crumbling structures that under-gird our bridges, our economy and our most intimate relationships.”

LCT panelists called Fitzpatrick’s portrayal “fine tuned, nuanced and believable.” According to one panelist, “Fitzpatrick was high strung and collapsing right in front of us. I’m still hyped up from her performance two hours later.”

A fixture on local stages, Fitzpatrick is making her Know Theatre debut in COLLAPSE. She recently appeared in SNOW-WHITE and GHOST-WRITER at Ensemble Theatre of Cincinnati and in A MAN FOR ALL SEASONS at Cincinnati Shakespeare Company. She has worked regionally at Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park, The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, Geva Theatre, Florida Stage, Florida Studio, CATCO, New Edgecliff Theatre, Human Race Theatre Co. and Porthouse Theatre.

COLLAPSE continues through March 3. Ticket information is available at

The League of Cincinnati Theatres was founded in 1999 to strengthen, nurture and promote Cincinnati’s theatre community.
