Lonesome No More!: For those who might not know, what is your show about? Can you tell us a bit about how the original project came about?
The original project happened because I was ignorant. A friend showed me the book of Svetlana Alexievich's Voices From Chernobyl, because she had seen the Prologue work as a monologue and I seemed be interested in that kind of work. The more I read, the more I wanted to encompass as many stories as possible. It's just a part of the world and history that we don't remember often enough to learn its lessons.
LNM: Why did you decide to make a children's version of the original play?
LNM: What have the challenges been thus far in the adaptation?
CMJ: We have a video of the team's reactions after our very first reading on the website (http://voicesfromchornobyl.
LNM: What have the triumphs been in the development of your project?
CMJ: Finding this amazing team. We've always had a strong ensemble, and at first all of our actors for the 'adult' script were going to perform the same roles in this interactive children's version. Schedules fell out of order, and then I realized in March that I wanted a director so I could focus on the writing and outreach. Now we still have regular ensemble member Kappa Victoria Wood, who plays the young girl, and this new phenomenally talented group of people, all dedicated to the story and bringing a whole new light into it, new ideas and new questions. Another major triumph was reaching out to my fellow Fringers and Arts Education community, who brought two amazing women on as our stage managers. Add our team members, plus Kozak our Director, Corwin the Sound God, all those wonderful people who joined us at Fringe Central to record some foley on short notice--well, I really can't feel more supported through this journey.
LNM: What do you hope to accomplish with your Fringe run?
CMJ: This project has always been about awareness, sharing stories that otherwise may not be heard. With our April Awareness Events, we were successful in consistently bringing new people and new audience to these survivors' stories, and branching out beyond the theatrical community to create a meaningful experience in the theatre for those who aren't in the habit of attending shows. For the Fringe, we want to expand our reach and broach this new audience of young people. The main story of our play is that people should ask questions of the world around them. So if people leave a little curiouser and with some questions and more of an idea of life in another part of the world, we will consider the Fringe run a success!

As a theatre company, we embrace this slogan and hope to foster unity between individual artists, between theatre companies, and within the community at large.
Kurt Vonnegut (November 11, 1922 – April 11, 2007) was one of the most influential American writers of the 20th century. He wrote such works as Cat's Cradle (1963), Slaughterhouse-Five (1969), and Breakfast of Champions (1973) blending satire, black comedy, and science fiction.

Pagan Play, a production that several of our company members were involved in.
We've already begun rehearsing in the theatre this month, building the work inside the theatre to bring you a show that will truly emphasize and take advantage of every nook, cranny, and corner that The Ruby has to offer. There's much work to be done yet, but we are truly looking forward to showing it all to you soon.
Can't wait any longer? Tickets are on sale!

Arts festivals, like the Hollywood Fringe, are incredible opportunities for artists like us to meet like-minded creators, show our work, foster community, and reach out to wider audiences than we'd be able to create on our own. We're pooling our own resources and getting creative, cooking up some fun fundraising ideas, and we are also looking to ask you - our community - for your support.
You can donate directly and safely to Lonesome No More through Pay Pal, and every single donation is a huge help!

Don't you worry.
The Hollywood Fringe Festival is an annual festival for the emerging arts. It is dedicated to providing support and performance and visibility opportunities for artists from all disciplines - theatre, dance, music, visual arts, circus, variety, you name it - and it all happens within an 11-day period in a square mile of Hollywood. This year's festival is June 16-26, with six days of preview performances happening June 9-14.
The Hollywood Fringe is an unjuried, uncurated arts festival that attracted over 180 participant groups last year from near and abroad and sold over 17,000 tickets.
Fringe festivals happen all over the world. The original and namesake festival is the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, which began in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1947 during an arts festival dedicated to enriching post-WWII cultural life. Several small theater companies arrived uninvited and set up performances on the "fringe" of the larger festival, taking advantage of the large crowds arriving for the other festival and showing off their work. The tradition continues now, and Edinburgh Festival Fringe is now the largest arts festival in the world.
Lonesome No More! is extremely excited and proud to be a part of the 2011 Hollywood Fringe Festival. You can - and should - check out our project page on the Fringe site (snapshot above). You can read more information about us and browse all of the other awesome projects coming this summer.

|Jennifer, Matt, Ariana, Fabie, and Amara (cast bios to come soon!)|
We had our first read-through of the enitre show last night with (almost) the entire cast and it was a truly inspiring experience. It was so exciting to finally be sitting in a room with everyone and hearing it out loud! We have some incredibly talented actors involved and we feel so lucky to be able to work on this beautiful play with such passionate and dedicated people.
