Theatre on the Edge Festival – Salmon Arm

Theatre on the Edge, in its third year, is a weekend long celebration of brave and bold theatre presented by Shuswap Theatre. Four to six shows a day run every two hours till night. Each play is under 60 minutes, and in between shows theatregoers can relax oudoors with a drink (Marionette Winery and local craft breweries) and a bite to eat (BeTeased food truck) while listening to free live music. Tickets, passes and information about artists and schedules is available at www.shuswaptheatre.com or at Intwined Fibre Arts on Hudson.

Three very different ‘fringe-tested’ solo shows from the coast will give ample opportunity for theatre goers to compare and contrast. The two Andrews, Andrew Bailey (Me, the Queen and a Coconut) and Andrew Wade (The Most Honest Man in the World) each mine their experiences to create a funny and insightful look at how and why they got to where they are today. The F Words is Yvette Dudley-Neuman’s fast paced multimedia frolic exploring topics like ageism, fattism, sexuality, self worth, spirituality and female friendship. Ida and Old Baldy Seniors Theatre is back at it again with The Reunion Project, a new collectively created play about the joys and terrors of a 50th class reunion. The grocery store is the setting for Salmon Arm Actors’ Studio’s series of funny vignettes called The Super Market. Audience favourites Saucy Fops from Kamloops will not disappoint with a new out-of-the-box creation celebrating contemporary life and its absurdities with a fast moving and hilarious set of short scenes. Finally, Monkey with a Box from Vernon will make their first Theatre on the Edge appearance with their brilliant brand of completely improvised comedy. Be prepared for anything, and be ready to give your suggestions.

Tickets and Passes available online at http://www.shuswaptheatre.com or at Intwined Fibre Arts (81 Hudson Ave). Single tickets $10, 3 shows $25, 5 shows $40, 7 shows $55.
