Raised By Wolves

Marla tells an incredible heartfelt, funny yet dark story about growing up in Canada, being raised by her alpha father and her quest to have her own dogsled team and to be an alpha. I really loved this show. For a minute I couldn’t see where it was going but without giving too much away the ending was unexpected and brought me to tears.

Yes. No. Maybe.

A whip smart, well written commentary on sexuality, morality and socioeconomics. This smart and funny one act will have you reassessing who you are or thought you were and where your moral compass lands – would you say Yes No or Maybe?

What I liked

The writing was fabulous and smart. I loved the characters and was especially pleased with the role of the assistant. She was written wittily and moved the story along well without being just an instrument to that end. I loved the physicality of the show and thought the acro was used well to represent sex. I also loved that this show gave us a view of both sides of the coin. In showing both characters motivations and insecurities it really made you think about who was taking advantage of whom, or for that matter if anyone was taking advantage of anyone.

BLACKBOXING

An wickedly funny, laugh out loud (and at times all too real) behind the scenes parody/look at the creation and mounting of an indulgent one person blackbox show. For Fringers and performers alike we can all probably see at least a tiny bit of ourselves in this show which is both scary and brilliant!

What I liked

I loved the interaction of Travis and Jim – especially Jim as the Wizard, hidden behind the scenes as all good wizards should be. I loved that it was, or felt immersive with me actually not having to do work and I still actually felt like part of the piece. The unexpected ending was a nice touch. While we all laughed OUT LOUD the whole time, the ending allowed the audience, of which I assumed many were performers/producers/etc to bond with Travis because as creatives and performers we too are always looking for validation and to be heard.

Crack Whore, Bulimic, Girl-Next-Door

An interestingly executed, smartly written, dark and painfully funny look into societal pressures, body judgement and their effects on young girls and women.
I really liked this show. It was timely and as a woman I can completely understand where the character is coming from. I loved how the main character was represented by three women, or rather three different voices of her psyche. Each gave us a brilliant view into the thoughts in her head. As women we are always being judged by society but often we are our worst judge, this was the perfect way to showcase those emotions. I also loved the inclusion of the one male character and felt he helped round out the cast and move the story along well. I thought this was an interesting, well balanced funny, sometimes hard, yet real commentary on societal pressures.

Vixen DeVille ReVealed

WHAT I LIKED Loved the audience interaction & body positivity message as well as a great mix of glass walking, fire eating & aerial! This show has something fir everyone without feeling over full! WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE It was fabulous- the only note I had was the video – which I LOVED could be a little more high rez. MY OVERALL IMPRESSION Loved the mix of a real story with burlesque which many burlesque show fall short of. Cat also seamlessly brings the audience into her world and it's a wild, fun ride!
