In Acceleration, graduate student Elise is haunted by her sister’s disappearance a year earlier. Desperate to forget, she wraps herself in a search for the elusive Higgs boson particle. But how long can she keep holding on to the past?

Why should someone come see your show?

Acceleration offers an honest and moving exploration of how we cope with a world that doesn’t make sense. It also has some amazingly bad physics jokes.

If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

Dr. Strange: smart, science-y, and all about trying to find a new life after an unimaginable loss.

If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe this year, besides your own, what show would that be?

I’m really looking forward to Setting Bones, the winner of this year’s Fringe New Play Prize, also playing at the Revue Stage.

#FringeDuJour is a daily peek at some of the shows coming to this year’s Vancouver Fringe Festival. We’ve asked Fringe artists to answer a few questions to entice you to see what they have to offer and to help cross-pollinate the Fringe.

The 2017 Vancouver Fringe Festival runs September 7-17 on Granville Island and stages around town. Visit for tickets and information.
