Going On

In this compelling, raw and hilarious one-woman show, Elizabeth Richardson counterpoints her adventures as a young actress on a theatre tour with Peter O’Toole and her later challenges as a Buddhist on a three-year meditation retreat. She manifests dozen personas, including O’Toole’s, intertwined with a heartbreaking mother/daughter relationship. Going On premiered at the Shelter Theatre in San Miguel de Allende (Mexico, 2012) to outstanding reviews, was selected for the SuperNova Festival (Halifax, 2012) and was a festival award winner at the Atlantic Theatre Fringe Festival (2012).  In July 2015 Richardson remounted Going On at The Waiting Room in Halifax with KAZAN CO-OP. The Chronicle Herald described it as “…a beautifully structured piece of art…a poetic, touching and funny story, wonderfully portrayed by Richardson.”  In September 2015 she brought the show to the Vancouver Fringe Festival.
