In the spring of 2009, four artists set out across Canada to interview one hundred people, ages 1 through 100 about their experiences and beliefs around KISMET - fate and destiny. What they discovered on the road – a myriad of personal stories of mystery, joy and endurance – became the anchor for a fascinating and intimate show that blends verbatim interviews with the experience of the travelers.

KISMET one to one hundred premiered at the Theatre Centre’s FreeFall festival in Toronto in March 2010. It then went on to play to sold-out houses at Rumble Production’s TREMORS at The Cultch and was nominated for ‘Outstanding Innovative Creation’ and ‘Critics’ Choice for Innovation’ at the 2010 Jessie Richardson Awards. The show was also presented at the Magnetic North Theatre Festival in Ottawa in June 2011, the Presentation House in North Vancouver, in October 2011 and The Gateway Theatre in March 2012.
