The Beauty We Carry

Created & Performed by Karie Richards

Direction & Production Design by Glenn Davidson


A soulful examination of the inevitable loss yet profound beauty that shapes a life. Crafted verbatim from interview material, this solo show considers the fragility, strangeness and unpredictability of our lives; a group portrait shimmering with joy and grief, secret hopes, and graceful acts of love.

"Out of deep sorrow and suffering, glimmers of resilience start to appear. Even as circumstances become more and more dire, the interviewees find inner strength with which to face extraordinary difficulties....Seemingly incapacitating grief gives way, dare we say, to hope. And the audience breaks out into sustained applause." ~Brian Carroll for apt613, Ottawa Fringe Festival

Part memory play, part manifesto for compassion, part anxiety attack. An intimate story of an anxious yet hopeful woman, haunted by her past and nearly unable to live in her present. Aunexpectedly funny confessional about keeping your balance, and the power of art to save us.

"...nothing short of stupendous." (5 STARS)~Winnipeg Free Press

"The play’s honesty and unexpected universality make it powerful, its contrasts make it sad and its humour make it hopeful."~Plank Magazine, Vancouver
