Searching for Dick at the Edmonton Fringe Aug. 13-23!

Searching for Dick: A Paranormal Comedy is back…(and back to its original title!)

“It’s laugh-out-loud funny, with tender moments too. Whether you’re a skeptic or a believer, Travis will get you laughing about, and reflecting on, life, death and the connections in between.” ★★★★– CBC Manitoba (Read the full review here)

After magical runs at FemFest and The Marigny Theatre in New Orleans, and most recently, the Winnipeg Fringe Festival, the show has evolved, grown, and blossomed. Now we’re ready to share this bizarre and beautiful theatre baby with the Edmonton Fringe Festival.
Spread the word among your friends and family! Here’s the lowdown!Searching_Tara Travis_Cover Shot

BASED ON A TRUE STORY. Tara becomes engaged to an amazing man named Jim. There’s sadness around this otherwise exciting event, however, as she has never met his parents, Louisa and Dick (both deceased). One day, Tara’s younger sister Chay seeks out a psychic medium for career advice…which she never receives. Instead, she finds herself in an intense conversation with the spirit of Jim’s mom, Louisa, who offers up some surprising insights. After hearing the recording of the session, Tara plunges into a journey where she visits every psychic medium she can find in the hopes of meeting her in-laws and gaining their approval before the wedding. Through a series of bizarre and life-altering experiences, she receives shocking messages from Louisa (including her long-lost famous brownie recipe) and meets a host of unexpected family members…but the clock is ticking and the search is still on for Dick.

Witness verbatim reenactments of actual psychic readings, experience puppetry from the afterlife, and taste delicious fresh-baked brownies (recipe courtesy of the spirit world). Yes, Tara bakes brownies during the show, and you get to eat them.
