Spitfire Company – Miss AmeriKa. Total Theatre Award and Herald Angel winning Spitfire Company return to Edinburgh with their new show. In a collage of music, text, photography and animation, Miss AmeriKa tells the story of a New York misfit and her experience of immigration, loneliness and dislocation. Its protagonist Mckenzie Tomski is a persona of the Czech performer Mirenka Cechova; an Everywoman representing all the outsiders who are standing in the shadows and dreaming the American dream. 'Going to extremes seems to be a default position for any work presented by the Spitfire Company' (Herald).
