All Stages Online: Spring 2013 – Role of a Lifetime – Laney

Laney and the cross

Kisa Mortenson – Crooked by Catherine Trieschmann – Fringe Festival, Edmonton, Alberta, August 2007

In Trevor Schmidt’s Crooked, I played an angst ridden teen. This is my favorite role, because I learned I was in the early stages of pregnancy while we were in rehearsals. Before every show, I would talk to the little bean inside, empowered by being two. I met my husband acting in a play, got married during Fringe, and found out I was pregnant while rehearsing for a show. Edmonton theatre has been good to me!
