In Draining the Swamp, Curious Creations gets curious again, with a comedic jab at The One and the 1%. Comic mayhem ensues when The Boss fires his apprentice, shoots his driver, and gets arrested for murder.
Why should someone come see your show?
Draining The Swamp is “Making Theatre Great Again”. If you start every day checking out what dumb-ass thing Donald Trump just did, you will love this show. The Boss connives, lies, cheats, and fires anyone who gets in his way. We sing, we dance, and possibly make you think as you tap your toes. A musical tweet.
If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?
“So we put out the bat signal for one man who could step in and solve all of our problems very quickly… and that’s how we got our latest superhero, Orange Sphincter. A native of Planet Asshole, Orange Sphincter is protected by his power smirk and golden helmet. No superhero is complete without his mortal enemy, Crooked Hillary.” Courtesy Bill Maher.
If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe this year, besides your own, what show would that be?
Just Not That Woman by Ali Kennedy Scott, AKS Productions. We are curious to see this play that appears to be the flip-side of ours. The playwright says, “What’s it going to take to kick inequality to the curb?”. A great question and we are intrigued to see her answer.
#FringeDuJour is a daily peek at some of the shows coming to this year’s Vancouver Fringe Festival. We’ve asked Fringe artists to answer a few questions to entice you to see what they have to offer and to help cross-pollinate the Fringe.
The 2017 Vancouver Fringe Festival runs September 7-17 on Granville Island and stages around town. Visit http://vancouverfringe.com for tickets and information.
