one person show
Japanglish, a tight and intelligent one-woman show, centres on the defining moments of a Japanese-Canadian family straddling two almost incompatible cultures. As their daughter embodies Canadian sensibilities, the parents struggle to fit into a new place and new language.
Grandma Noda’s Tigers, currently on as part of Victoria's Uno Fest, is one of those special little shows where everything seems to work supernaturally well. Never before have I seen a house so full on a pay-what-you-can opening night. Actor/writer Chris Little (who co-wrote the show from his wife Regina Fitzgerald’s first draft) seemed pleased with this, too – and quite deservedly.
You know that when a show starts with the performer drinking her own urine and chewing on tin foil that you're going to be in for a bit of a ride.
It may be hard to believe, but that little guy wearing the checkered cook pants, white shoes, yellow shirt, black vest and white bow tie, playing the accordion, and rockin' the "jewfro" is one of Canada's most sadly underrated singer- songwriters.

Catherine Montgomery (writer/actor) is a spitfire manic performer and she pours everything she has into her balls-to-the-wall -- sorry, pussy-to-the-wall -- performance in Straight From That Side of Town. Whether you want to go to that town is another story, but hey, this is the Fringe. Sometimes we're forced to go to places we don't really want to go to.
“This is a cock!”
“Oooooee” I think as Collette Kendall opens her piece at Performance Works late on Thursday night. She holds a large dildo and proceeds to indulge in cock facts and cock stories.
