This show has been touring the Canadian Fringe circuit for the past two years to rave reviews, was invited to be the entertainment for Artstarts in the Schools in 2014, and most recently has been invited to the Spring Works Festival in Stratford, Ontario.

This show is available in a 60-minute version or a 90-minute two act version. Workshops on solo productions and discussions on traveling the Canadian Fringe circuit are also available.
