Katharine Ferns is in Stitches

"It is a pitch perfect performance and a beautifully-written, perfectly-paced comedy script. Absolutely wonderfully done. A perfect Fringe show. Laughs. Tears. Jaw-dropping. It deserves a (formerly-known-as) Perrier Award" John Fleming
"Brutally honest from the start, this show just goes to prove you can make comedy out of tragedy…moving, witty and sincere.” **** North West End

Brutally funny and unflinchingly honest, "In Stitches" is the latest Fringe hit from comedian Katharine Ferns (MTV, ichannel). Using comedy for catharsis, "In Stitches" takes audiences through the visible and invisible scars of surviving mental illness, domestic violence, and drug addiction — with some feminism thrown in for comic relief.

Based on true events from her own life, the story begins on April 21, 2016 — the day Prince passed away and Katharine ended up in stitches (literally). Through personal insights and a lot of laughs, Katharine’s acclaimed solo show leaves her audiences in stitches (figuratively).

Ferns says, “This is the most honest comedy show I have written. Violence and mental health are issues we don't talk about enough, and through comedy I am able to talk about my experiences in way that is empowering but also honest. Since performing this show in the UK, I have received so many messages from fellow survivors and people that want to be advocates for change in how we deal with domestic violence in society. These inspiring audience reactions propel me to keep telling my story and hopefully it helps others talk about their own experiences too.”

Following her critically-acclaimed performance at the Greater Manchester Fringe, In Stitches played at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival August 3-27 before hitting the Vancouver Fringe Festival Mainstage September 7-17. After the Fringe circuit, Katharine takes In Stitches to the small town in Alberta where the events from her show actually happened. Ferns adds, “In a sense, I’m returning to the scene of the crime to tell my story and reveal the truth of what happened to me there that I hid from everyone for so long.”
