Today you can totally confuse your friends

This is the one day of the Vancouver Fringe where you can see both my show, Lord of the FILES and an actual adaptation of Lord of the FLIES, called Lord of the Flies: Remixed, in the same day.

2:00pm Lord of the Flies: Remixed – Circle Point, Granville Island

This remixed version of the novel is part of a week-long workshop with a cast of teens by The Only Animal. It’s a cool project.

7:00pm Lord of the Files – False Creek Gym, Granville Island

I’m taping tonight’s show, so it would be a great night to come by. Also, if you go to both, you can totally confuse your friends. Or have bragging rights. Or something.

 

Half-price show for opening tonight and 2-Minute Preview

This is my third day in Vancouver and it’s been pretty nonstop since I landed. I had tech yesterday morning and did some wandering around with my stage manager Monique. Then I did a story from the show at The Flame’s all-Fringe storytelling event. Really interesting, really diverse bunch of stories. Thanks again to Deb Williams and Joel Wirkkunen for having me.

Today, I’m folding programs and getting ready for opening. My opening night show is half price, so come on by –  6:45 at False Creek Community Centre.

And then at 10:00pm I’m doing the Georgia Straight’s 2-minute preview at Performance Works. Tickets are $10 and available online or at the theatre.

Fringe Article in The Globe and Mail

I’m mentioned as a performer in The Globe and Mail’s article on the Vancouver Fringe:

Hot Ticket: Vancouver Fringe

“…with the proliferation of storytelling-based podcasts such as The Moth, and more stripped-down, Web-based TV series, there is more crossover than ever between the Fringe and other media. In fact, Martin Dockery from The Moth, Canadian actress Beverley Elliott, Lesley Tsina of Community and comedy favourites Peter n’ Chris and Sam Mullins all have shows this year.”
