Crush hits the Fringe Festival!
In COLD OPEN, a guest artist opens the show with an excerpt from their own Ottawa Fringe play, then Crush takes it from there. Inspired by the themes, characters and narrative of whatever our guests bring to the table, Crush will create their own original show before your very eyes.
We've already had two fantastic shows, and a review!
