No Place – Toronto Fringe 2017 Press Release

From Press Release

No Place is about a young woman finding her voice and unearthing deep family secrets just in time to bury her beloved grandmother.  Written and performed by Jillian Welsh (Second City House Co., RISK! Podcast) and directed by Shari Hollett (For the Record, Radio: 30, Second City), the show weaves interconnected stories for a brutally honest and painfully funny examination of the things we take with us and the things we leave behind.

Praise for Jillian Welsh:

“The performers are very good, especially Welsh, who seems equally at ease with comedy and drama. If she has a day job like this, I hope she sticks with the acting; she’s a natural.” – Glenn Sumi, Now Magazine review of Pressgang Theatre’s Served.

“Jillian is one of my favorite performers in this city and one of the most unique voices in storytelling.” – Paul Afalo, Confabulation Storytelling.

“A very funny talent.” – Kevin Allison, The State/RISK Podcast.
