Alysha has had the absolute pleasure of continuing on 2019 by Assistant Directing ANOTHER show. The revised version of Cleo Theo and Wu as well as MESS by/for Kirsten Vangsness (Criminal Minds).
THE FEMIPRE (what both shows are being called)went to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2019 and performed in the Power Room at The Assembly Rooms.
Having understudied Kirsten as Lucy in the first iteration of Cleo Theo and Wu (CTW) at the end of 2018, she was so pleased to be working alongside her Director for CTW Lisa Sange Dring.
The show was more stream-lined for The Fringe (55 minutes!) and even included songs.
She was even able to join them all for the final leg of the Fringe Festival to help out the production team, as well as seeing one of her favourite cities and being a part of the EdFringe for the third time in her life.
Truly this was one for the books.
Cleo Theo and Wu

Cleo Theo and Wu:
Lucy (Kirsten Vangsness of Criminal Minds) is just trying to work out how to be the best cool girl, lady boss, and all around woman she can be when suddenly, the fate of universe is in her hands. Never fear! Space creatures and the forgotten women of history are teaming up to get Lucy on track. Careening through time and place on a heroine's journey with the women who are more than what the HIStorians have you believe
We all are a mess, I guess. In Mess, Kirsten Vangsness of Criminal Minds explores the non-linearity of time, visible quantum objects, monsters, kittens and Christian rock.
