Carlyn Rhamey can’t get her life together. She drinks alone. She suffers from ADHD. She’s probably going to die alone. (Her words, not mine.) She’s also prone to mortifying moments, many of which involve exposing her underwear.

“My life has always been a lighthearted trainwreck,” Rhamey says of these awkward moments that are central to her one-woman autobiographical show, Saor (Free). However, this humorous and exciting show isn’t only about underwear fails and the all-too-common sad-in-love trope. Above all, it’s about travel.

Sharing the stage with a bulletin board filled with souvenirs and postcards, Rhamey tells stories she accumulated as a solo traveller in the United Kingdom, sharing experiences with locals and fellow travellers she met along the way. Part Eat, Pray, Love part Bridesmaids, you can’t help but fall in love with Rhamey for baring it all.

Rhamey exudes excitement from the moment she steps on the stage. Her performance isn’t perfect, but it’s this awkwardness that make Rhamey so easy to relate to and so likeable. Audiences can’t help but laugh at her off-the-cuff Irish and Scottish accents and cringe-worthy stories.

“I did this. I did this incredible thing on my own,” says Rhamey in one of the plays more tender moments. Saor (Free) is the perfect play for anyone who is grappling with their identity, and asking themselves, “What’s next?”

  3. The cultural history of Inter-war Europe is filled with such powerful and influential interpretations of a reality that defeats the human capacity to imagine evil. Take Picasso's Guernica for instance. In June 1937, Picasso finished painting the Modernist classic in response to another April tragedy: the bombing of the Spanish city of Guernica during the civil war. It was his anguished creativity reacting to George Steer's eyewitness account of the incident.

  4. My entire working career up until that point had only been the safe route with a large corporation. You know the life. The daily grind. The BS you put up with because you figure this is the ONLY way. I even went on to get a psychology degree because the jobs I had been looking at required it. When I finished my degree I found that the amount of education I had was once again not enough.
