“… by far the most intimate and insightful theatre experience you’re likely to have.” (roverarts.com)
“I haven’t been shaken by a piece of theatre like this for quite a while.” (audience member, Ottawa Fringe 2010)

WWhen Tom Wingfield brings home a friend from work for a dinner one evening, his mother Amanda’s dreams of a suitor for her daughter Laura seem to be coming true. Through Tom’s memories and narration we see the tragedy in each Wingfield as they retreat into their own preferred reality; be it a glass collection, a Sunday afternoon in Blue Mountain with seventeen gentleman callers, or poems scrawled on the lids of shoe boxes. The Glass Menagerie was Tennessee Williams’ first great success and continues to be one of the most-performed and loved classics in theatre.

Over the past 20 years we have seen a growing realization that the current model for society and culture is unsustainable. We have been living beyond our means… Future of Hope is a documentary film following individuals that strive to change the world of consumerism, a system of credit and debt that the Icelandic economy was built upon for the past 10 years or more. Focusing on sustainable developments in organic farming, business, innovation, renewable energy and the environment – filled with positivity and emotion as we are taken on a story of struggle, determination and most importantly… hope. From the midnight sun, to dark winters lit only by the snow, from geysers to volcanoes, this movie truly explores the magnificent country of Iceland. Future of Hope takes you on a journey from the history to the present and even into the future of a new and sustainable Iceland.
Mix killer Improv with an Outstanding Musical Performance, Sketch and Stand-up and you have one hell of a good cabaret show to usher in the month of March! TICKETS $15 905-529-3000
Egg Zeppelin is a 2-person, long-form improvisational comedy show. From audience suggestions, the comedy duo of Kris Siddiqi and Marcel St. Pierre create a spontaneous hour in the lives of Dude and Man, the owner-operators of a dilapidated greasy spoon in a non-specific, small Canadian town just a few hours on the Trans-Canada Highway, halfway between ‘here’ and ‘there’.
They cook. They talk rock, politics, history, philosophy, or whatever their local early-morning talk-jock suggests. They play guitar, sing songs and dish out all-day breakfast and advice to whoever drops in – usually someone stuck at a literal or figurative crossroad on the way to a gig.
Add to that a musical segment that features ANDREW PENNER FROM THE SUNPARLOUR PLAYERS, SKETCH WITH HAMILTON’S OWN, THE UGLY STIKS AND HOSTED BY THE LOVELY AND ALWAYS FUNNY LIANNE MAULADIN and you have a kick-ass cabaret
In addition to a healthy serving of laughs and lyrics – at least one full all-day breakfast is actually ordered, cooked and served as part of each and every show. No substitutions are allowed.
A SHORT HISTORY OF THE SHOW
Created by and starring Marcel St. Pierre and Kris Siddiqi and directed by 3-time Canadian Comedy-Award winner Lisa Merchant, Egg Zeppelin premiered in February 2010 as a live show at Toronto’s Bad Dog Theatre Company, and featured top comics and special musical guests — like The Frantics’ Peter Wildman, rising stars like indie music ingenue Allie Hughes, folk musician Jory Nash and Halifax’s own hip-hop favourite, Wordburglar.
The show was also shortlisted (from over 140 competing submissions) and performed at Toronto’s Comedy Bar in August 2010 as a finalist in Insight Entertainment’s ‘Pilot Week’ showcase – a week-long festival of 30-minute pilot proposals performed live on stage.
MUSICAL GUEST ANDREW PENNER ADDED FROM THE SUNPARLOUR PLAYERS

Some nice things the Critics have said about ‘The Cockwhisperer-A Love Story’
THE EDMONTON SUN 5/5
EDMONTON JOURNAL 4/5
‘hilarious and haunting.’
‘…edgy, flat-out funny monologue. This Hamilton housewife and mother to three has a unique comic-theatrical delivery that pushes the limits of taste without being offensive – although, she won’t spare your blushes’
The powerful coming-of-age story of Colette Kendall is an austere expose of growing up as a young, protestant, naive-but-burgeoning woman in the late 1970s and an emerging love of, well, you know.
This one-woman show is honest, revealing and will have you laughing from the moment the lights dim to the moment you leave. But don’t be fooled; it’s not all fun and games. Serious moments are interwoven to create a well-rounded and empowered performance. One warning to anyone who likes to sit in the front row: Kendall will interact with you, which is hilarious if you’re in the mood. From the creator of the Canadian Comedy Award-nominated Tippi Seagram’s Happy Hour and Who’s Afraid of Tippi Seagram?, Kendall delivers a show that will make you laugh from the bottom of your belly with her unforgettable stories.
Fringe Review: The C–kwhisperer–A Love Story
Four stars/5 starssmart, funny, one-woman show, which explores Kendall’s search for love and penises. Kendall is a solid writer and strong performer. With the C–kwhisperer–A Love Story, she has found a wonderful connecting thread with which to tell the story of the main men in her life.
Colette Kendall tells the story of her discovery of her sexuality, from awkward teenagehood to her present status as an adult. Through an abusive husband to his loving but sexually repressed best friend. This show is an anthem to sexual positivity told with humor and a sense of fun.
Over the last 11 days, Wilzie and I have seen 15 shows in total – and I am happy to report that most have been good. A couple were “meh” and 2 were outstanding. I won’t go through every play we saw, but I will mention the 2 outstanding shows we were fortunate enough to see: The Cockwhisperer – A Love Story. This was just one woman, Colette Kendall, talking. Talking about her relationship to the Cock… This was also a really funny show – until it wasn’t, and then you felt like you got punched in the gut. But it was phenomenal from start to finish.
