2018 UNO Fest line-up

From the underground to the mainstream, Intrepid Theatre’s UNO Fest of solo performance returns May 9 – 19 for year #21. This 11-day festival is chock-full of fearless artists, daring stories, solo audience experiences, slam parties, and hands down heroic performances.  

This year’s festival features a Spotlight on Indigenous Women’s Voices and Guest Indigenous Curator Yolanda Bonnell; two Theatre for Young Audiences shows, presented in partnership with Kaleidoscope Theatre for Young People; immersive site-specific shows where the audience becomes the performer; and the first UNO Fest show (ever) from Ireland.
