#Turning13 is a very special time for us here at the Hamilton Fringe Festival. So out of curiosity we asked a random selection of companies to ask their MAIN CHARACTER a #Turning13 question. See what Break A Leg, Kairos, Make Art Theatre, and Referendum had to say! (PLUS find out 2 fun facts about their show).

On a Limb and a Prayer on #Turning13

Q: What advice would the main character of your show give to their 13 year old self?
A: Hey Kid. Seriously. Listen to this. Learn French. And make sure you have an excellent insurance policy.
Q: Give us two fun facts about your show, your company, or your team.
A: 1. Vincent [the actor] gave the director/playwright an incredible haircut at the Nite Owl on Father's day.

2. Amanda [the stage manager/actor] appears in nearly every major movie theatre in the country -just after the trailers and before the feature film. Look for her.
