The Frigid Festival Will Present FINDING FELLINI

The Frigid Festival Will Present FINDING FELLINI

"Finding Fellini", a mighty memoir about one woman, Megan Metrikin, who leaves the brutality of Apartheid South Africa in search of her muse -Federico Fellini, in Rome. You slip down the rabbit hole with her and emerge into a wonderland of palpable sensuality, exploration and adventure. It's a wild, obsessive, funny, filmic experience about the power of art to lift you out of any political or emotional doldrums.

The show garnered two awards at the United Solo Theatre Festival (Best actress and Best production design) and three awards at the Midtown International Theater Festival including Outstanding Solo Show (MITF) Outstanding Set Design (MITF) and Outstanding Sound Design (MITF).

Megan Metrikin is both playwright and performer in this vivid ode to Federico Fellini, the muse to a woman trapped in the horrors of Apartheid South Africa. Guy de Lancey is both director and designer
