52 Pickup

A new play by Katie Nixon 

52 Pickup is a musical about coping from trauma. How do you pick up the pieces? Funny, hopeful, and emotional, 52 Pickup portrays a journey that finds beauty from pain.  Original text, music, and choreography come together to show the how trauma affects social interactions, the body, and brain. 



"Witty, interactive, and as hilarious as it is sobering" (4 stars, DC Metro Theatre Arts). "Katie Nixon is a smouldering, evocative menace of an artist who has an absolute hit on her hands" (Capital Critics' Circle).

The Ottawa Fringe Festival awarded Nixon with the award for Outstanding Solo Performance for 52 Pickup in 2019.
