The Present Imperfect
Playwright: Fiona Martinelli
The true story of a professional foreigner! In this uplifting, amusing, and soul-searching show, Fiona takes us on a world tour of her uniquely challenging life. Through her ESL classroom, the audience discovers—and at times participates—in Fiona’s journey from a multicultural upbringing to life in 10 countries, with five kids, and 17 well-worn passports.
“I’ve just watched your show and I’m in tears. Tears of joy. Tears of empathy. Tears about the questions it raises for my/all our lives. Happy tears but bittersweet too. It is superb!” —Mitchell Butel (Artistic Director of State Theatre Company South Australia.)
