Almost a Stepmom



Directed by Michael David Stewart


Almost a Stepmom debuted to great acclaim at the 2015 Victoria Fringe Festival. The one-woman show draws from Vancouver-born-and-raised theatre grad Keara Barnes’ relationships during three formative years she spent living and working in Dublin, Ireland. From falling in love to navigating new and reimagined relationships, Almost a Stepmom is about making difficult decisions and listening to your gut.
