After the performances of her memoir-based show Sara does a Solo - in New York City, San Francisco and a coast to coast Canadian tour – Porter is back onstage with the premiere of Getting to Know Your Fruit. In the piece, Porter examines the fruits of her 30-year career in performing and writing, and uses humour to approach Virginia Woolf’s dictum that “If you do not tell the truth about yourself, you cannot tell it about other people”. The performance also features the festival edit of Sara does a Solo, described as “Outrageously funny and brutally vulnerable” (Scott Charles, The Writer’s Block, San Francisco), and “Refreshingly candid, urgent, and deliciously fun! Sara Porter is fearless.” (Niegel Smith, The Flea, NYC).
