Lynne Stewart Presents: Queen of Fishtown

April 12th & 13th @ 8pm & April 14th @ 2pm

7280 Melrose Avenue

Named "Best Character Driven Solo Show at Edinburgh Fringe" (Firework Award) set on a stoop in Philadelphia, where humor is a defense mechanism and self-care is a punchline. Kathleen Burke’s not that mad her Fishtown neighborhood gentrified around her, but when she gets the surprise of her life at her 40th birthday party it triggers a high stakes battle to maintain her authenticity while facing even more inevitable change. Profound and profane, “Queen of Fishtown” is a love letter to the historically overlooked and unappreciated city of brotherly love and working-class women everywhere.

“Queen of Fishtown” was born from a sketch Katierose Donohue Enriquez created, more than a decade ago, while performing in the Groundlings Sunday Company, of which she and director, Corey Podell, are alumni. The show has enjoyed award* winning runs at Edinburgh Fringe, the Hollywood Fringe, in London at the King’s Head Theatre, Theatre Row on 42nd Street and Under St. Mark’s in New York City, NAMBA performing Arts in Ventura, the Little Fish and Broadwater Theaters in Los Angeles and in Philadelphia at the historic Plays and Players Theatre where Katierose performed her show in the city that inspired it.

“I just loved it. It has so much heart and so much soul in it. As they say, ‘you’re gonna laugh and you’re gonna cry.’ Katierose is a brilliant actress. You’ll love this one woman show.” - Lynne Stewart, Groundlings alum (Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Pee-Wee’s Playhouse, Bridesmaids)

"Katierose has created such a heartfelt and honest story with a perfect unsung hero. That’s not a character we hear from very often and it’s about damn time she gets her own show. It’s hilarious but I didn’t expect to be so moved by it." — Andrew Rannells (Girls, Book of Mormon, Boys in the Band)

“The prime strength of ‘Queen of Fishtown’ to my mind is the voice it affords to a certain kind of woman in our society, not necessarily from Northeast Philly, who is often overlooked or ignored” RECOMMENDED - Deborah Klugman, STAGE RAW, Los Angeles

“In this one woman show, Katierose brings Kathleen to life with a fantastic narrative of a 40-year-old woman, dealing with change to the neighbourhood she has grown up with and the dramatic changes in her own life. She also brings to life all the other characters in the plot in this truly poignant and hilarious piece of work, a somewhat Irish stubborn humour made better with the fantastic Philly accent.” – Fiona Doyle, THE ARTISCAPE, London
