Maura Halloran Earns Best Actress at United Solo Festival

Huge kudos to BFA Acting Alumna Mara Halloran who has earned the award for Best Actress at The United Solo Theatre Festival in New York. United Solo is the world’s largest solo festival with 121 productions this year from 6 continents.

Mara’s award comes at the end of a tour with her original one-woman show Pussy which was originally conceived as a short for Theatre at UBC’s Tour de Force Festival. The full length version of Pussy premiered last year at DIVAfest in SanFrancisco and went on to success at the New York International Fringe Festival as well as to Seattle Fringe Festival.

Maura is pictured here with actress Fiona Shaw who also was presented with a special award at United Solo in recognition of her outstanding achievements in the art of solo performance.

Next up for Mara is participating in the San Francisco One Minute Play Festival. Later in the new-year she joins The Cutting Ball Theatre’s Risk is This… Festival for a reading of Stegosaurus by Andrew P. Saito, directed by Rob Melrose.

In Spring 2014 Maura returns to The Cutting Ball Theatre for Communique No. 10translated and directed by Rob Melrose.
