Last Night at the Carmine at Fringe Festival
Last Night at the CarmineEveryone has experienced a moment that felt so inconceivably epic they were certain no word could encompass what is was to them. Yet every language contains untranslatable words that seem to find there only clear definition through these moments. Example: Yuanfen (Chinese): The midpoint between serendipity and fate.

In Caroline Kelly Franklin’s “Last Night at The Carmine” 7 life changing moments occur on the roof of a treasured NYC pre war building that will be condemned following day. This heart wrenching, funny, sexy play uses a completely unique format, taking untranslatable words from fourteen different languages and using them to discover these indefinable moments. Come experience The Carmine’s unforgettable last night.
