"GO" Winnipeg Fringe Festival

Jul 17 - Jul 27

  • Admission: $14
  • Time: 9:00 AM to 9:00 PM

“GO” is the story of a 336km hike no one asked Laura Piccinin to go on. Much like wanting to go on a beach vacation and accidentally ending up on “Survivor”, the East Coast Trail of Newfoundland proved to be beyond the expectations, and capabilities, of this first-time thru-hiker.

Following a journey of trying not to get killed in the woods, Laura Piccinin recounts the stories of her life, reflecting on fear, bravery, and the stupefying concept of, “WOMAN ALONE”. Piccinin says of the show, “It’s a story of physical and mental torment, exponential disappointment, and a quiet perseverance to have everything I’ve always wanted”. This sentimental and hilarious show reminds audiences to get out of their own way, and GO do that thing that they really, really, want to do.

Winner of Just for Laughs’ “Outstanding English Comedy Award”, and creator of the critically acclaimed Queer stand-up comedy, “LESBIHONEST”, brings a new and exciting piece of storytelling theatre to Winnipeg, Saskatoon, and Edmonton Fringes this summer season.

This is a tale that encompasses everything that we are at our most basic, and our most profound.
