By Lynna Goldhar Smith

I am an artist and writer living in Vancouver Canada.
I paint, and write plays and songs and sometimes direct theatre.

I love the spirit of the Fringe Festival. I love the unbridled creativity. I am so happy to be part of it again after all these years.

“I love that I am bringing my brand new play Sally Lives Here to the Vancouver Fringe. I am so glad I decided to do this”

The whole process from the first scribbles through to the final rehearsal draft has been a labour of love. I am looking forward to sharing it in a few short weeks. My creative team Sarah Rodgers, Bill Moyssey, and Mike Schaldemose are helping me bring the show to life on stage. I love the process of taking this imaginary world that I have built on paper and then extending the process with the director and the design team. It’s always a thrill. And I am super excited to be in the Fringe after so many years.

The Fringe Festival is like a band of creative gypsies coming to town, with wagon loads of unbridled creativity. 

What’s not to love?

And it’s one of the best ways I know of to bring new work to life.

I hope lots of folks come see my new work because audiences are the key ingredient to making the magic.

Are you listening Theatre Gods? Tell everyone. Whisper in their ears.
Tell them to come see Sally LIves Here at the Vancouver Fringe. September 8-18th. Amen
