Canadian Nancy Kenny’s one-woman show is back at Fringe for another two weeks of soul-saving. Roller Derby Saved My Soul rolls back to Orlando Fringe this year following its success last year. The show continues to be a quirky and polished hour of fun.
Kenny’s main character Amy opens the show in a place we’ve all been in at one point – sitting on her couch watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer and eating popcorn, which she passes around to the audience. Her “cool sister” June (also played by Kenny) calls and invites Amy to her roller derby game. Amy’s dreams of finally becoming like one of the badass female superheroes she sees on TV are fulfilled as she tries her feet at the sport.
