A valuable antique husband has been stolen! What’s a dame to do? Film noir has never made less sense as dame and detective careen after a dastardly criminal, avoiding traps, thugs, and logic at every turn. Can they rescue the captured consort before he ends up on the black market? Can they defeat the same actor in several different hats? And can they do all this without making too much of a fuss?

In an attempt to gather the power of a unicorn’s horn, Jonah tries to trick the Princess Mary into taming Rafferty, the Unicorn. A rollercoaster ride of the power of sexuality and theater. Loosely based on a lost one act Shakespeare play that may or may not exist, Virgin and the Horn was originally performed in Fredericton NB years ago but the themes are timeless.

About Michael

Michael has performed across Canada and opened for such acts as Mike MacDonald, Angelo Tsarouchas, Nikki Payne and Gilbert Gottfried.

Content Note: In one scene, an actor will interact with an audience member in the crowd. Afterwards, the actor will invite two audience members on stage for a brief moment – no physical contact. There are two swear words (f*** and s***). Additionally, there is a hammer used as a prop. There is one line of dialogue: “you say that s*** again; I’ll shoot you.” But no actual physical violence is displayed.
