Voice of Authority going to Pittsburgh Fringe Festival in April 2018

I like would not have considered entering the lottery for this festival, but I met its director in Edinburgh last August and she was pretty cool, and also interested enough in the show’s concept that I was curious to see how it would play in Pittsburgh.

Networking used to be a real struggle for me, and it’s still not so easy, but I’ve been to so many festivals by myself in the past four years, and if you don’t talk to people they get pretty isolating. Better to bite the bullet, and I’ve met many cool people because of it.

And now I’m going to a place I’ve never been before because of it also.

Voice of Authority delivers a good helping of comedy and masterful solo performance. An entertaining and thought-provoking show. – Fringe Review UK
