Candice Fiorentino performed "Anatolia Speaks" in last year's Canadian Fringe Circuit as well as independently in Nanaimo and Cranbrook. 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 summer's run went extremely well, earning the show 5 stars and raving reviews. Candice has been invited to perform the show in select University classrooms and has a spot in the 2014 Winnipeg and Vancouver Fringe. Dates and showtimes to be announced closer to the date.
"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."
5 stars out of 5 from the London Free Press & 4 stars out of 4 from The Beat Magazine. Click here to read reviews of "Anatolia Speaks".
