Fringe Preview: The Soaps

4 Jul

Your Name: Christy Bruce

Your Fringe Show: The Soaps! A Live Improvised Soap Opera: City Hall Edition

Your Role (writer / director / cast member, etc): Producer, director, cast member

Tell me about your Fringe show in 100 words or less: After selling out shows the last two years by taking the audience to The War of 1812, and the Shawford festival, we are now taking you to the cracked and dirty underbelly of City Hall! Staring some of the city’s best improvisors and armed with nothing more than a director, a setting and unscrupulous characters,  we’ll make City Hall look more corrupt, and show you a mayor that is even more of a disgrace then what we have in our great city.

Now do it as a Haiku:
Ford running through snow
improvisors on the stage
in the july wind

Your favourite Fringe Festival memory (doesn’t necessarily have to be from the Toronto Fringe): Having people from Stratford come to our shows that took place in “Shawford”.  It was all very meta for them, I’m sure.

If you produced a FringeKids! show about Rob Ford, it would be called: Watch our for the Crack Man
