In No Big Deal a young woman, her boyfriend, and the man who molested her tell their stories. She’s been told it’s no big deal. Her boyfriend’s mom always says, ‘people get what they deserve’, and the guy is sorry, not guilty, but sorry. The play explores what exactly is the big deal.
Why should someone come see your show?
We don’t know what to do when a sexual assault happens. It frequently happens to young people, and there is not training on the steps that are available and open. This is a very compelling and entertaining look at how to deal with something tragic and walk away empowered and in control.
If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?
Wonder Woman – because she doesn’t take shit and people underestimate her.
If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe this year, besides your own, what show would that be?
#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.
