Wild/Society is inspired by Oscar Wilde and Samuel Beckett

In the Oscar Wilde inspired Wild, forest animals face the housing market crisis. Then, in the Samuel Beckett styled Society, two executive penguins bide their time after being forced into hiding.

Revue Stage, Granville Island

1. Tell us about your show.

Wild/Society is an absurdist theatrical comedy about a city rabbit, a country raccoon, and two drunk and elitist penguins failing to save the environment. It’s two short plays, Wild and Societywith a nail-biting interlude that features a race and a swimming pool.

2. Why should someone come see your show?

Our production is fast paced, politically aware, surprising, strange, and created by a team of professional practitioners who are women! Boom! Plus it’s silly as heck. We think it’s a solid production with a bangin’ cast.

3. If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?

The character who starts off as the good guy … but then turns evil!

4. If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, besides your own, what show would that be?

We’ve been doing the cross-Canada Fringe tour, so we’re sweet on a lot of touring shows. Tara Travis’ Til Death Do Us Part, Bella Culpa by A Little Bit Off, The Jupiter Rebellion by Jeff Leard, James Jordan’s Vaudvillian, to name a few. We’re also very excited for Jonathan Young’s solo show, Great Day For Up.

The 2016 Vancouver Fringe Festival runs September 8-18 on Granville Island and stages around town. Visit http://vancouverfringe.com for tickets and information.
