I woke up this morning with a knot in the pit of my stomach. Even though the Ottawa Fringe Festival was mere minutes ago, even though I have a good show that I am incredibly proud of, I am incredibly nervous about heading out to the Hamilton Fringe Festival.
Today, after a French radio interview in Toronto about the show, I’ll be taking the GO Train out for my technical rehearsal. I’m trying to focus on the work that needs to be done before we open on Friday.
If you are in or around Hamilton over the next two weeks, or know people who are, please, let them know about my show. Nerves be damned. It’s going to be a blast!
