Madeleine Says Sorry – Toronto Fringe 2017 Press Release

From press release

Bold, spiteful, and hilarious—Prairie Fire, Please is proud to present Madeleine Says Sorry. Failed actor, Madeleine, loses her big break to a wiener dogso she attempts to drown it. Now she must apologize not only to the dog, but to all of society.

Madeleine Says Sorry is a dark comedy about the monsters created by performative activism and political correctness.

This world premiere satirizes our apologetic Canadian culture. It invites audiences to question how our morals are constructed. Audiences need to see this show to consider the harm we can cause by blindly adopting opinions. We must examine the inequities within our own activism and allyship. In a time that screams for revolution, we need to force less, and listen more.

One thought on “Madeleine Says Sorry – Toronto Fringe 2017 Press Release”

  1. It was a sold out at the opening tonight and justly deserved. It was very good; better than I had expected. It was not too dark but definitely funny and there is depth to the story.
