Storytelling shows

Alright: Solving the Problem of Living

June 8-17 at the Montreal Fringe Festival

Written and performed by Nisha Coleman

Directed by Paul Van Dyck and Stephen Maclean Rogers
Music by Patrick McMaster

Acclaimed storyteller Nisha Coleman (Self-Exile, Cornichon) spins a yarn of nail-biting, heart-wrenching, darkly comedic adventures as she gets locked in the Madrid train station with a stray cat, is rescued by the Princess Bride's Westley while busking in Halifax, and saves a young woman from a brush with death in Montreal. Through these true-life stories, Coleman delves boldly into themes of mental illness and suicide, and attempts to “solve the problem of living” by learning to be Alright with being Alive.

“Will leave the audiences howling”

SELF-EXILE

Nisha Coleman transports the audience from her hippie childhood in rural swampland to street performing in Paris. Self-Exile is a humorous and compelling exploration of alienation, mental health, and self-identification.
