Experience Fran’s unrelenting compulsion to explore The “F” Words from fat, forty, forgotten, and f**cked to f***.
The “F” Words
Havana Theatre, 1212 Commercial Drive
1. Tell us about your show.
The “F” Words is about a woman’s unrelenting compulsion and exploration of loss and being lost through ageism, fattism, self image, beauty, self worth, spirituality, and female friendship. It is raw, unabashed, and unrelenting. A bitter-sweet, comical, “coming of age” journey back to the self, intermingled with an exploration of how words and our relationship with them shapes, holds, imprisons or releases us.
2. Why should someone come see your show?
The “F” Words takes audience on an emotional roller coaster or range of emotions combining many elements, including music, song, story, and movement. Who knows, you might increase your vocabulary by learning a few new “F” words
3. If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?
Female Captain Underpants because it is weird, quirky, funny, cutting, edgy and irreverent and like Captain Underpants, in his tightie whities, when I go to the beach (in the show) my stark white granny panties are blinding!
4. If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, besides your own, what show would that be?
Sally Stubbs show And Bella Sang With Us. Sally is also a Wet Ink Member and I admire her and consider her a mentor. She is a wonderful writer and is kind generous and supportive.
