My Fringe Schedule: Day 2

For the second day of performances, I scheduled myself for two productions.

CFF_I Hate It HereSHEatre: Cincinnati Women’s Theatre inaugural fringe offering is I HATE IT HERE, written and directed by its co-founders, Abby Rowold and Caitlin McWethy respectively.

Shelly and Margaret are at an impasse in their relationship. Shelly’s an unemployed, outgoing hypochondriac, and Margaret is a highly functional agoraphobe who hasn’t spoken to anyone but Shelly and their cat, Mr. Furrypants, in a year. To jumpstart their lives and eliminate their faults, they try to meld into one person.

The cast includes Abby Rowold and Sarah Fischer. Be sure to keep an eye on their official website, for information on their future staged readings.

Working hard to avoid any electricity puns, my other performance for the night is TESLA EX MACHINA. This one-man show is written and performed by Ricky Coates, a Seattle-based theater artist.

In 1892, the famed inventor Nikola Tesla awoke with partial amnesia. Using his incredible willpower, he pieced his life back, memory by memory. In this one-man biopic, Ricky Coates examines humanity and science using his trademark theatrical prowess. Featuring: tap dance, robots, historical figures Thomas Edison and Mark Twain, and live electrical wonders! “Ricky Coates is a bit of genius in a slick and muscled body” – Edmonton Journal.

Wednesday night, CESSNA enjoyed a near-capacity audience. I’d recommend you get tickets for the remaining performances sooner, rather than later. DARLINGS also performed to a packed house.
