Going On
Kristin Olson-Huddle presents live on stage:
Going On
An inspiring true story about loss and finding the love inside yourself.

Written and performed by Kristin Olson-Huddle. Directed by Debbie Lamedman.

Olson-Huddle's parents died in an unusual accident when she was young.  As she grew up, she hit roadblocks to her grieving process.  As a young adult, her brother died.  At that point in her life she gained the skills and found the support to figure it all out.

Going On, Olson-Huddle's solo performance piece, takes us on the emotional roller coaster of loss and healing.  From local Portland landmarks, to the essence of her unusual circumstances of her childhood, Olson-Huddle's portrayal of characters transports us and illuminates the powerful journey of grief, growing up, and going on.

"Everyone is going to experience a death of someone they are close to, if they haven't already.  It's inescapable.  I want to empower people to stay present and express themselves through that experience, no matter how difficult that may be."
--Kristin Olson-Huddle

"Olson-Huddle makes her audience believe, root for, and love herand in this context, that's no small feat. Confessional one-person shows like this one are an especially tough act to pull offOlson-Huddle is a pro storyteller, balancing detail with momentum and mixing her self-affirmation with an all-important pinch of humility."
