THE ADHD PROJECT

After successful workshops at the St. Catharines In The Soil Arts Festival and Hamilton Mental Health MindPLAY Festival,Carlyn Rhamey brings her award-winning show, The ADHD Project to the Hamilton Fringe Festival from July 20th – 30th .

Written by Rhamey and directed 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 about neurodiversity”, explains Rhamey, “and hopefully show how hilariously eventful life can be when you experience it a little differently.”

In Ottawa, audience members lined up at the end of every show to thank Rhamey and talk to her about their own experiences with ADHD and neurodiversity.

Rhamey closed the festival winning the Ottawa University Emerging Artist Award.

The Hamilton Fringe Festival is the third stop in a five-city Fringe Festival tour in 2017, having enjoyed successful stops in Ottawa and Regina, where Rhamey is also performing her Hamilton Fringe Best-of-Venue hit SAOR.

The ADHD Project opens July 20th and runs until July 29th. Tickets are available at HamiltonFringe.ca or at the door.
