VENUE 24 – VENTURA HALL

OLIVE COPPERBOTTOM: A New Musical by Charles Dickens and Penny Ashton

Following the global delicate sold out successes of Promise and Promiscuity, Kiwi Penny Ashton swaps Austen for Dickens and brings orphaned hero Olive, and a squalid gaggle of hilarious Victorians to crusty life. A rollicking one-woman musical journey through 15 singing, dancing and gin guzzling characters.

EUROSMASH! (by Die Roten Punkte)

Back by popular demand, Berlin’s premiere art rock duo, Otto & Astrid from the band Die Roten Punkte, perform unashamedly slick, Eurovision-inspired pop from their new album Eurosmash! amidst some inevitable sibling dysfunction and punk spirit anarchy.

 

 



 

SWORDPLAY: A Play of Swords by Sex T-Rex

Winner of the 2015 Just for Laughs Best Comedy Award and the 2016 Atlantic Fringe Best Comedy Award, and with a trail of sold-out houses and rave reviews, Sex T-Rex’s most popular show SwordPlay: A Play of Swords comes to the Winnipeg Fringe.

Chandelier-swinging, epic adventure and swordfights, swordfights, swordfights await as Sex T-Rex brings their signature cinematic style to the stage, dancing from The Princess Bride, to Final Fantasy, to Game of Thrones and dipping their rapier wit into all things sordid and sworded.


VENUE 25 – ACU HALL

THE BALLAD OF FRANKA ALLEN – Written and Directed by Shane Adamczak

From the bizarre minds of Australian Fringe-favourite Shane Adamczak (Zack Adams, Trampoline) and Al Lafrance (The Quitter, JFL Award winner) comes a new sci-fi buddy-comedy about a man who lives in another man’s beard.

DRUNK GIRL – by Thea Fitz-James

Part theatre piece and part storytelling show, Drunk Girl explores the intimacy, tenacity, celebration and terror of women who drink. We watch performer Thea Fitz-James analyze what people say about drunk girls, her own drinking, and family rituals, asking, through 2 enigmatic characters, why so many smart, high-achieving women, seem to love a drink or 10.
