The Way of All Fish by Elaine May

“It’s time for us to measure.”

A self-absorbed executive and her devoted secretary spend an unexpected evening together.  Things are suddenly not as they appear and we find one of them may have other plans in mind.  A challenging game of cat and mouse ensues.  But who's the cat and who's the mouse?  And more importantly, who is strong enough to be ...the biggest fish?

Gemini and Genie nominated, Elva Mai Hoover (Road to Avonlea, Mama, Murdoch Mysteries) stars as Ms Asquith. In 2012, Now’s Jon Kaplan named hers as one of the eight outstanding performances at the Toronto Fringe Festival.

Tracy Rankin (Three Sisters, Flashpoint, Joan Macleod’s Jewel – *****, one of the top six shows at the Winnipeg Fringe Festival) stars as Miss Riverton.

Miss Fozzard Finds Her Feet by Alan Bennett
“If you want to open the door to a lifetime of hard skin, I can’t stop you.”

Miss Fozzard, an aging store clerk, regularly has appointments with a foot care specialist.  When Miss Fozzard's chiropodist moves away, she finds herself playing footsie with a new doctor who has a foot fetish.  A saucy adventure of the feet.

Nonnie Griffin (Sister Annunciata’s Secret at the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, The Flying Avro Arrow, and the memoir Show Biz & Other Addictions) stars as Miss Fozzard.

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode.
