Join us for Death Married My Daughter and The Truth About Comets, two of the best shows from the Fringe Festival at the Best of Fringe.
THE TWO SHOWS
SHOW #1: Death Married My Daughter (7 to 8 p.m.): What would happen if Shakespeare’s Ophelia and Desdemona came back from the swamps of death where they have endured the longest exile? Resurrected by their desire to expose the “abusers” and “murderers”, they would revel in denouncing “Man”; they would destroy, with delight, the established values of a Man’s society. A biting, Bouffon-inspired satire. Show info. (http://www.tocentre.com/studio/deathmarriedmydaughter)
REVIEW: "The show opens and closes with Desdemona and Ophelia dragging themselves across the stage and what happens in between is theatrical brilliance." - Mooney on Theatre (http://www.mooneyontheatre.com/2013/07/07/death-married-my-daughter-play-it-again-productions-2013-toronto-fringe-review/)
SHOW #2: The Truth About Comets (9 to 10 p.m.): A boy who vanished in 1958 starts to speak through the radio, endangering his family. A young woman’s only chance at solving the mystery is by teaming up with someone she hardly knows: her mother. From the creators of The De Chardin Project, Mister Baxter & Fish Face. Show info.

REVIEW: "Fast-paced, funny and deeply moving, this production directed by Kate Fenton is a Fringe gem waiting to be discovered. Mohr and Hansen make a cosmic combo on stage..." - Theatromania (http://www.theatromania.ca/news/2013-toronto-fringe-festival-truth-about-comets)
