Inspired by true events ...

Inspired by true events, TORCHED is a new solo dramatic comedy, co-created by Terri-Lyn and acclaimed writer and director Kate Twa. TORCHED introduces Ana, who at twelve years-old was nearly killed in a chemical explosion at an elementary school when a science experiment went wrong. Ana suffered third-degree burns to two-thirds of her body and fell into a coma. Ana's fifteen year-old sister, Claire, recounts the day that changed everything; and we see how Claire and a series of characters try the best they can to cope with the unfathomable. Inspiring, dark, and funny, TORCHED is one woman, twelve-character play that will make you laugh, break your heart and give you hope.

TORCHED toured across Canada to great Critical Acclaim on the Canadian Fringe Festival Circuit and was selected Critics' Choice in Montreal and Toronto and was Runner-Up for the The Centor Award for Best Production at the Montreal Fringe Festival. The play was selected Pick of the Fringe at the Vancouver Fringe Festival.

Tour destinations for TORCHED were Montreal, Toronto, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Edmonton, Vancouver, Penticton, and Summerland.

"Kate Twa's script uses the accident as a focal point for what is mostly a coming-of-age story about the girl's older sister, and her script is full of vivid images....Terri-Lyn Storey performs the play's multiple characters with nuanced grace."

"One of the biggest challenges for any actor is being cast in a one-person show....A few can do it brilliantly and that is exactly what the audience experienced when Terri-Lyn Storey brought her one women show ,Torched, to Bare Bones stage on Wednesday night...Storey is a joy to watch as she flows from character to character in a seamless tapestry..."

"...it's amazing the way humour and hope can illuminate the darker corners of human experience. Torched is, by turns, brave, funny and touching...it's a powerful and compelling 60 minutes of theatre and well worth your time."

"I was completely won over by the remarkable performer, Terri-Lyn Storey. Writer Kate Twa manages to depict how a happy, middle-class family falls apart following the horrific event without ever exploiting that event. Storey even manages to earn a few hard-won laughs. What are you waiting for? Go."

* * * * " An impressive, aggressively charismatic performance from Terri-Lyn Storey in this one-woman show about a high school student almost burnt to death by a chemistry experiment. From stark material, Storey and writer Kate Twa create an affecting and unexpectedly humorous tale. "

“Once again Terri-Lyn Storey delivers the goods in what is probably the solidest drama at this year's Fringe...Storey flickers between fully formed and flawed characters like the dancing squares of a disco globe, A peautiful piece."

* * * * 1/2 "...this is a play not to be missed, both for the tightly written script by Kate Twa and for the sharp, moving performance of Vancouver's Terri-Lyn Storey...It's an amazing work, that goes through a complex gamut of emotions."
