Now What Theatre (NYC, New York and Glasgow, Scotland)
Celia and Rhys are waiting for the train. The last train that will ever run from Paris to Rome. But so are thousands of others, and the lottery has yet to begin.
Formed by members of the 2016 MA Classical and Contemporary Text (Acting) program at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland in Glasgow, Now What Theatre is a group of international actors and theatre creators dedicated to producing new works. Kara Sevda is their first production, and first Transatlantic tour.

More from the Artist!
Why did you choose PortFringe this year? What did you do to prepare for this production?
“We went through every festival we could find, and were particularly interested in keeping to the east coast. Portfringe looked young, fresh and fun. The website was accessible and welcoming. And to top all that off, we have a lot of friends in the area. We were so excited to get in, and can’t wait to come to Maine! …It is hard to prepare for a tour when half your production lives across the Atlantic. But that is what Now What Theatre is built on: a group of transatlantic friends who like making good art together. So you do line-throughs over Skype, and you plan your performance dates around 90 day visa restrictions, and you deal with changes in time zones, and you Whatsapp your composer to talk about sound cues, and crowdfund to afford plane tickets. “Kara Sevda” has been a complete labor of love for all involved. We’ve worked hard to put on show that hopefully reflects that.”
Is there another PortFringe show you’re excited to see?
Pick just one?! We missed There Ain’t No More: Death of a Folksinger while we were in Florida, and would love to catch that. It seems like a show that is different and exciting, and we know it’s been well received in festivals already. We want to see what all the buzz is about!
