GAYRANIAN will be making it’s world premiere here in Port Hope.
He’s gay. He’s Iranian. And it’s time to tell his parents. But he’s scared. Iran is one of seven countries in the world where being gay will legally get you killed. It’s time for the Gayranian to put his fears aside and sing and dance his way through this heartfelt and humorous coming out adventure.
JOE:THE PERFECT MAN
Crowning Monkey proudly presents Joe: The Perfect Man winner of the Ottawa Fringe Festival OUTSTANDING COMEDY AWARD.
Lost and Found: how a Protestant girl from Warwickshire ended up keeping a kosher kitchen in Toronto is an autobiographical solo theatre tour-de-force.
From her first appearance on stage at the tender age of four we follow Marilla Wex’s epic search for true love, spiritual fulfillment and creative success across two continents. It’s about love and loss, marriage and infidelity, immigration, cultural clashes, step-parenting, depression and recovery. The working title for Lost and Found was Three Jews, Two Weddings and a Custody Battle. That pretty much sums it up.
After this performance I am fairly certain that I would pay money to hear Marilla Wex discuss a trip to the dry cleaners. Four shows into his year’s Toronto Fringe Festival, I finally found a show I unabashedly loved. This is really just fabulous, and you should go and see it. Read the full review here
