More Information



_The Magnificence of the Disaster _takes emotional curves on two wheels, the tires screeching with laughter, while driving the audience into the hearts of its eccentric and deeply troubled characters. The work is unflinchingly honest and unapologetically entertaining, showcasing Fisher’s gifts as a comic actress and mesmerizing storyteller.

Fisher started developing the piece in January 2004 with David Ford and continued to hone it as a member of The Marsh Performance Initiative. She workshopped an early version at the 2005 San Francisco Fringe Festival, then presented the piece in its entirety to sold-out audiences and great acclaim in The Marsh’s Festival of New Voices last May. Regionally, Fisher has performed with New Conservatory Theatre, Three Wise Monkeys, and Shotgun Players.

Fisher is the co-creator and producer of the East Bay solo performance series Tell it on Tuesday. She works as a theater teaching artist and was actively involved in the former arts education program at the Julia Morgan Center for the Arts. Currently, she is at the helm of her own program, Theaterplay.
