From Press Release
Prairie Fire, Please in association with the 2018 Toronto Fringe Festival presents:
Everyone Wants a T-Shirt!
When Beatrice sinks her potato-based start-up, she must ascend the ranks of an imposing pyramid scheme in order to rebuild her career. Peddling “Women Rule The World” t-shirts, pancake mixes and portable batteries in the name of feminism, Beatrice encounters a cast of characters like herself: desperate to save the world, find community and define their own identities.
Feminism is no longer a bad word, it’s a selling feature. But what happens when corporations cash in on the ideology? Have we helped our community or have we helped turn a profit? Ever afraid of her morality, playwright and cog in the machine, Madeleine Brown invites her audience to question their own.
From the “whip smart” losers behind 2017 Toronto Fringe sellout, Madeleine Says Sorry, comes a twisted comedy about entrepreneurial failure, commercialized feminism and how to sell a shit-ton of t-shirts.
Our team is made up of key contributors from recent Toronto indie hits including Aaron Jan of Silk Bath (Next Stage Festival 2017, NNNN), Rachel Kennedy of Urban Myth (Next Stage Festival 2017, NNNN) and Madeleine Brown and Aaron Jan of Madeleine Says Sorry (Toronto Fringe 2017). But don’t take our word for it—here’s some press for Prairie Fire, Please’s Madeleine Says Sorry:
