Meet James, a devoted son who quits university to save the family farm. With the help of an exotic elixir that lets him feign death, he quickly learns there’s a good living to be made from dying.

Inspired by the serial from “Weird Tales” written by Napanee Ontario’s own “King of the Pulps”, H. Bedford-Jones.

Cold Comfort

Cold Comfort tells the story of Kevin Toner who returns to Belfast after a 15-year absence. He has a bone to pick, and he is determined to have a conversation with his father that will leave no stone unturned. There’s only one problem. His father is dead. And lying in a coffin in the front room.

Evacuate

A dark comedy about the foibles of old age. With a forest fire threatening their home, John and Iris are put on evacuation alert and must prepare to leave at a moment’s notice. However, as the fire looms dangerously closer, the couple learns that even in a marriage of over fifty years there are still some secrets that could destroy their lives.

SOLO: A BOY’S JOURNEY

A melding of myth and personal history, SOLO tells the tale of two teens in trouble with the law who come together on a canoe trip with their social worker in Canada’s North. This journey leads the boys away from their chaotic childhood and into a world that is both frightening and life-changing. Add a loud-mouthed raccoon trickster and you have a combination of high drama and sharp humour that keeps this one-man show balanced on the edge.

The Very Very Girl

Stripped. Deprived. Made bare. How do you go from a strict Sikh upbringing to stripping in bars across Canada? How do you navigate the distance between the girl you were, the woman you’ve become, and somehow find your way to the person you want to be? At the age of 15, THE VERY VERY GIRL makes the difficult decision to leave her traditional Sikh family – a move which frees her of abuse but leaves her feeling lost, alone and desperate. She tries to find her way in increasingly dangerous places, through sex, alcohol, and drugs, working in strip joints to make her way. THE VERY VERY GIRL follows one young woman’s search for freedom … and the many missteps she makes along the way.
This piece plays at the Annex Theatre. Show times: July 05 08:45 PM, July 06 04:00 PM, July 07 09:45 PM, July 09 02:15 PM, July 10 01:45 PM, July 11 07:30 PM, July 13 07:30 PM

Contest Rules: 
(these will remain the same for each Fringe contest, so take the time to read the list once and you’ll be set)

  • The only acceptable form of entry for the contest is by email, sent to contests@mooneyontheatre.com (Mooney on Theatre will never use your email address for anything other than to reply to the specific contest you entered, and we certainly would never sell it or anything like that)
  • Each show counts as its own contest, and each entry must be in a separate email. So, if 5 shows are giving tickets away on a given day, and you want to try for each of them, then you need to send 5 emails.
  • Entrants must be available on the day and time listed in the contest. The tickets are available for that showing only, and cannot be transferred to another date.
  • The winning entrants will be chosen by a random drawing.
  • Winners will be notified by email by 9pm on the day of contest closing and need to confirm their attendance 10am AT THE LATEST the following morning so that their names can be given to the theatre company for tickets to be set aside.
  • Photo I.D. may be required to claim the winning tickets.
  • Tickets must be picked up 60 to 30 minutes before show time at the venue box office. The box office reserves the right to release any tickets not picked up 15 minutes before show time.
  • We ask that all winners provide us with a quick blurb on what they thought of the show, either in the comments section of the press release on Mooney on Theatre, or if it has already been reviewed by Mooney on Theatre in the comments section of that.
