“We interrupt this daycycle with an important update from the Ministry of Truth regarding the explosion in Hallway 17-A.

Everything is fine.

Citizens with information on this incident are ordered to report to sector 101 at their earliest convenience, or face summary clone line termination.”

52 Pickup

Katie Nixon

52 Pickup is a one-woman show that explores what it’s like to cope with and overcome trauma. The story follows Katie as she comes to terms with her own traumatic incident and relearns how to navigate the world with altered vision. Funny, hopeful, and emotional, this play portrays a journey that finds beauty from pain.

The show follows a woman as she struggles to cope after being sexually assaulted. The character has panic attacks onstage and talks briefly about her abuser. The show was built to be a safe place for all people who have experienced different types of trauma and we have no intention of triggering our audience. However, the healing process is not pain free and our show portrays that.

A Period Piece

Lauren Welchner & Monica Bradford-Lea

“I heard if you use a tampon you lose your virginity”

Let’s get personal. Join us for a wacky, honest, and musical unpacking of our relationship with our vaginas and the things that come out of them.

Described as “two local female performers who have a very strong and defined perspective” (New Ottawa Critics), and “side-splittingly funny” (Apt613), Ottawa-based theatre company Spicy Day has been creating new, critically-acclaimed productions since 2016.

BABEL ON

Tim C. Murphy

Talking is so easy, until it’s with someone you love. A love letter to Mom and Dad – with a side of cheesy 80s music, attachment theory, and lessons from courageous students in Kuwait. Tim’s most personal show yet.

From the creator of Fringe hit BLIND TO HAPPINESS (2016 Toronto Best of Fest | 2017 Ottawa Best of Fest | “Murphy is masterful” ★★★★ National Post ★★★★★ Ignite FM ★★★★ ½ VUE ★★★★ Edmonton Journal ★★★★ Torontoist ★★★★ Winnipeg Free Press ★★★★ EYE Toronto ★★★★ Uptown Winnipeg)

Bat Brains or (let’s explore mental illness with vampires)

Sam Kruger

Deep inside central Minnesota’s sole decrepit Victorian manor, there lives a vampire named Scud. Scud loves toilets. Scud loves humpback whales. Scud loves Quincy Jones’ Big Band Bossa Nova, especially when paired with certain…bodily fluids.

Except, Scud is terribly, horribly afraid of you…the living.

But when a surprise visitor appears at Scud’s door, he is launched off on a madcap journey into the darkest depths of his home, his mind, and beyond.

Think Mr. Bean meets Dracula, crossed with a feral mongoose.

A new solo play from Sam Kruger, creator of Fool Muun Komming! <BeBgWunderful/YEsyes/4sure.Hi5.TruLuv; Spank Spank: SOfun_Grate_Times> 

Winner:
Pick of the Fringe – Edmonton Fringe, 2018
Outstanding Solo Performance – Ottawa Fringe, 2018
Outstanding Solo Performance – London Fringe, 2017

“Like a coked-up Robin Williams at his most agile and frenetic, Sam Kruger is a special and weird Fringe jewel” – CBC

BEANS OF FURY

Matt Hertendy

Grouchy customers, long hours, little pay, and the constant threat of being burned. You MUST have a smile on your face. At. All. Times.

Not to mention you’re working in the last corporate coffee chain in an inhospitable world.

And you’ve just been cast out to find the last remaining stash of coffee beans on earth.

A highly caffeinated, object-puppetry infused, lip-synchy satire.

Created and Performed by:
Matt Hertendy, Sheldon Parathundyil, and Robin Star Breiche.
