From Press Release:
Written and performed by award-winning storyteller Carlyn Rhamey, directed and designed by Fringe veteran Jon Paterson (Dora Award winning BoyGroove), The ADHD Project is a biographical account of growing up with ADHD and learning to embrace and celebrate what makes us different. “I’m sharing my story in hopes that it will raise awareness and promote acceptance towards neurodiversity”, explains Rhamey, “and hopefully show how hilariously eventful life can be, when you experience it a little differently.” The ADHD Project also includes a projection element to include photos and personal home videos.
The ADHD Project premiered in the 2017 Ottawa Fringe Festival, where Rhamey won the Emerging Artist
Award. Since then it has sold out shows across the Fringe Festival circuit in Orlando FL, Vancouver, Edmonton,
London and Hamilton. In each city, audience members have lined up at the end of the show to share their own experiences with ADHD and neurodiversity. The Toronto Fringe Festival is the fifth stop on a nine-city Canadian tour this summer, with four Fringes for The ADHD Project and a stop in Edmonton for the National AccessAbility week. The ADHD Project also tours Ontario schools for Grades 4-12 with Prologue to the Performing Arts.
