Your Role (writer / director / cast member, etc):


Tell me about your Fringe show in 75 words or less:

May earned her job as prison photographer through sacrifice. Now as the regime’s enemies pass in front of her lens, she must choose what more she can sacrifice for someone she loves. S-27 is a searing drama drawn from testimony of events in the Khmer Rouge’s S-21 prison, now the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum in Cambodia. Photographs of former prisoners now covering the museum’s walls inspired the characters and story of this historic fiction.

Okay, now do it as a haiku:

Passport photos to death
Sit still so I can take it
You leave through that door

Your favourite Fringe Festival memory (Toronto or elsewhere):

Audience members clutching programs in front of faces when we made their jaws drop.
