"A few highlights [from the National Elevator Project]: "The Club" by BC playwright Kendra Fanconi,  maximizes the energy and fun of the confined space, and even manages to pack in a surprisingly resonant, woozy, confessional punch at the end."

"beautiful wistfulness"

"a fascinating experiment in standup theatre" Edmonton Journal

A sample from the script: "When I had my son, I remember walking sorta stunned into the city and seeing the people and thinking, “O God, all of us were BORN, every single one of us, that is how we all got here. There is no other way.” Naked, wrinkley, with kind of mushed-in noses, having arrived from our stint living inside another person. Other person as home. We all started there. We all know that. You know what I mean? I knew you would. I’m not that coherent when I am this sweaty. Are you?"

The Only Animal creates cultivates and inspires theatre work that arises from a deep engagement with place.
