Almost a Stepmom
Created and Performed by Keara Barnes
Based on a TRUE story. Keara moved to Ireland. She fell in love. Then she became a stepmom…almost.
A darkly comic tale about the ups and downs of becoming a stepmother.
Multiple characters and a murder attempt round off this tumultuous and touching solo show.
This award winning show has toured to critical acclaim across Western Canada, most recently completing a sold out run at the 2017 Vancouver Celticfest.

It is easy to forget you are watching one woman. It is the antithesis of the solo chess match portrayal I imagine lesser performers would play.” (Two Cents Two Pence)
“She is one vivacious young woman and a born storyteller” (Calgary Herald)
“Almost a Stepmom is a powerful look at a life that could have been. It’s also a show that you don’t want to miss.” (James Hutchison)
