CAROLINE IN THE ROLE OF “GIRL”
World Premiere short play, Chicago’s festival of plays and new works
Written by Kristen Idaszak, directed by Sarah Moeller
Caroline played the role of “Girl” in this short play which was part of Collaboraction’s annual festival of mixed-media theatre, music and performance art, a Chicago-flavored and smaller version of the Edinburgh or New York Fringe Festivals. There were 40 plays that participated in the festival in 2010 and hundreds of actors and performing artists. However, Caroline was only one of four women who received the award for “Best Female Performer/Actor” as voted on by judges from a panel of industry professionals including representatives from The Goodman Theatre, O’Connor Casting, American Theatre Company and others.
