We are back with our annual #FringeDuJour series, giving visibility to as many Vancouver Fringe Festival shows as possible, with a new one every weekday leading up to the Festival.
Trevor & Margaret
Trevor & Margaret is a funny and intense play about finding love and being trapped by who you are, and who you were. Trevor, his dad Glen and girlfriend Margaret are on a journey.
Tell us about Trevor & Margaret
A gay guy is looking for love and is trapped by his relationship with his father and his dead mother. It is very funny at times, and gets painful as Trevor exposes more of the confusion in his life.
Describe your show in three words.
Everyman. Funny. Family.
Why should someone come see your show?
The idea of a path to discovery is a common experience. The fact that Trevor is gay, but we only see him in a heterosexual relationship, highlights the fact that the play is about another journey of discovery. It is not about being gay, but about understanding his past so that he can become the person he is.
If your show was a superhero which superhero would it be, and why?
Batman. Complicated. Dark. Self-destructive. And the older, wiser Alfred and his sense of knowledge.
If you could see only one show at the Vancouver Fringe Festival this year, besides your own, what show would that be?
The Bitter Tears of Petra Von Kant, because they are the only ads I’ve read so far.
#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.
