FEATURING: One Man’s Show
Written by Al Rae • Featuring Sarah Constible
7PM Saturday September 25th
Colin Jackson Studio Theatre @ Prairie Theatre Exchange
One Man’s Show is a provocative psychobiography which examines the gendered history of mankind by seeing what all humans have in kind. On the eve of his marriage Sarah-as-Al searches for his place in his family, in the world, in history, and within himself. This unique monologue filled with dark humour, draws outside the lines.
A comic and a writer since age 19, Al Rae was co-creator of Little Mosque on the Prairie for which he received a Gemini Award and the Prix Roma Screenwriting Prize (Italy). He is also the creator and writer of the CBC Radio hit: Monsoon House with Russell Peters and is currently the Artistic Director of the CBC Winnipeg Comedy Festival.
