UNO WORKSSarah Murphy, Ann-Bernice Thomas & Eddi Wilson
UNO Works is an evening of three short new works by some of Victoria’s most daring female artists: Sarah Murphy (CCPA alum), Ann-Bernice Thomas (past Victoria youth poet laureate) and Eddi Wilson (drag king/performance artist Eddi Licious).
Commissioned specifically for UNO Fest, UNO Works is artist-driven. There is no formula for making new work for the stage and we invite you to come and witness the thrill ride that is intrepid artists from diverse, interdisciplinary backgrounds redefining what theatre is.
Pay-What-You-Can – All shows marked * are Pay-What-You-Can for tickets at the door. We reserve 25% of every Uno Fest Opening Night for PWYC tickets. Advance tickets for these shows are regular price.
