Candice Fiorentino will be starring in her very first one-woman show in this year's Canadian Fringe Circuit. Produced by Poiema Productions, and written and directed by Canadian playwright, Kenneth Brown, "Anatolia Speaks" is a story of hope and a return to life after war.
"The ever-cheerful Anatolia addresses her ESL class. She loves being a new Canadian working at Superstore, but questions about her past in Bosnia elicit a darker story of struggle, passion, and survival. Candice Fiorentino gives a heart-wrenching performance of a play that celebrates the power of the human spirit."
You can catch "Anatolia Speaks" at the Edmonton Fringe this summer and in Nanaimo and Cranbrook this fall!
