★★★★ “With a sparse set Travis is able to sketch out absorbing portraits and dialogue. In one breath she leaps from emotional vulnerability to flawless comic timing. Ouija board says: see this one.” -Vancouver Sun

“In Searching for Dick, Tara and Jim Travis weave a romantic, touching, poignant and most definitely hilarious tale complete with puppets, blacklights and the smell of baking Brownies…mmm.” -www.plankmagazine.com

Unfortunate Ruth_4_web_Tara Travis_RGBTara Travis was thrilled to receive the 2014 Playwrights Theatre Centre and Fringe New Play Prize for her original script, The Unfortunate Ruth: a comedic tale about parallel Universes, sisterly bonds, and self-actualization.

Tara is thrilled to have collaborated with shadow puppet masters Mind of A Snail who created original projections for The Unfortunate Ruth. Expect delightful shadow play illustrating the story inside the womb where it all began.

“Whether it’s to get the biggest laugh or the maximum vulnerability, solo performer Tara Travis knows how to spin a line.” -The Georgia Straight
