Edmonton Fringe Festival (Reviewed at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, 2017)
‘Evacuated!’ is a fascinating true story about a year in the life of actor Erika Kate MacDonald. It is presented as a series of narrated ‘photograph’ vignettes, which are drawn together to present an overall image – sometimes terrifyingly real, sometimes dreamy and ethereal.
MacDonald is instantly likeable. She immediately captures the hearts of the audiences, and kept them rapt throughout. The writing is top-notch, the direction is tight, and the material is original and truly interesting.
Creatively presented and beautifully written, this is Fringe fare at its best.
