Alex Dallas is back with her brand new show, Horseface. As a stalwart of the Fringe she has earned the name, “Queen of the Fringe” as she has performed in more than 150 Fringes worldwide, starting in Edinburgh in 1982.

She performed with her comedy troupe, Sensible Footwear, originally from the UK, in the Toronto Fringe since 1990 and at Fringes across Canada, the USA and Australia. She has also brought her solo shows, Goddess, Nymphomania and Drama Queen to Toronto, Los Angeles and Adelaide. Goddess and Drama Queen have been aired on CBC Radio and Bravo TV to much acclaim.

But now she’s back with Horseface!

A show written in response to the #Me Too Movement, Horseface is a journey in comedy and storytelling of a woman’s innocuous encounter with a manspreader on a train and what ensues.

Does she assault him ? Is she pushed over the edge? And what does Jane Fonda have to do with it?

A comedic and poignant story of a woman’s life from the 70’s to the present and all her #Me Too moments along the way, some hilarious and some less so.

The show pemiered in May 2019 at the Orlando Fringe to rave reviews and won Best Show in the Red Venue from the Sponsors!
