An Evening with the Vegetarian Librarian

Monday, 17 February 2020 to Saturday, 29 February 2020
Adelaide Fringe

She might be a vegetarian, but she's also the Gen-X meat in the inter-generational sandwich of the modern workplace.
A mostly true, slightly made-up tale of thwarted ambition, underachievement, and a funeral in a library. A meditation on reading and an ode to life before the device.

After selling-out her five star show in 2019, Tracy Crisp once again brings her unique blend of poignancy and humour to Fringe.
Tracy Crisp's last show at the Bakehouse  won 5 STARS from The Advertiser -  “Tracy Crisp’s stories of memory and family are vivid and affecting in her show The Forgettory." - Louise Nunn

Tracy Crisp is a writer and performer of novels, memoir and monologues. Since returning to Adelaide from Abu Dhabi she has been a regular at Adelaide's storytelling events, known for work that brings a potent mix of heart and humour. An Evening With the Vegetarian Librarian is her third memoir-monologue, following on from her previous shows, Pearls and The Forgettory. In 2019, The Forgettory received five star reviews and sold out almost as soon as it opened. Her work has universal themes, but is planted firmly in South Australia - from her show Pearls set in Port Pirie, to her forthcoming novel Blackout set in the airport the night of the statewide blackout.
