Anatolia Speaks written and directed by Kenneth Brown at the 2013 Edmonton Fringe

Poiema Productions presents “Anatolia Speaks”, a brand new play starring Candice Fiorentino, written and directed by acclaimed playwright, director and actor, Kenneth Brown.

The ever-cheerful Anatolia addresses her ESL class. She loves being a new Canadian working at Superstore, but questions about her past in Bosnia elicit a darker story of struggle, passion, and survival. Candice Fiorentino gives a heart-wrenching performance of a play that celebrates the power of the human spirit.

“Anatolia Speaks should be on everyone’s must-see list. It is an achievement, one of those rare pieces of theatre that can actually make a difference…” 5 Stars-Joe Belanger, London Free Press

“…an absolutely brilliant performance…” 4 Stars out of 4-John Palmer, The Beat Magazine
