SOLO, NOT ALONE: Toronto Premiere of Drunk Girl and Everybody Dies in December
Two award-winning and critically acclaimed one-woman shows, Drunk Girl, by Thea Fitz-James, and Everybody Dies in December, by Nancy Kenny, will have their Toronto premiere at Theatre Passe Muraille’s Backspace from February 6 to 10, 2019 in a highly anticipated double-bill.
Part theatre piece, part storytelling show, Drunk Girl explores the intimacy, tenacity, celebration, and terror of women who drink. Created and performed by Thea Fitz-James (NAKED LADIES - Summerworks), Drunk Girl takes an honest look at why so many smart, high-achieving women seem to love a drink or 10. Is the Drunk Girl a contemporary cultural crisis or a radical feminist?
Everybody Dies in December is a dark comedy that explores familial obligation, mother-daughter relationships, and whether or not a funeral is a good place to pick up. Canadian Comedy Award nominee (Roller Derby Saved My Soul - Best Solo Production), Nancy Kenny is Claire, a third-generation funeral home director, more at home with her 'clients' in the basement than with the mortals upstairs.
