Becky is an exhausted mom and her husband Sebastian is a man trapped in a soul killing day job. It’s date night and they are going to attend a “snobby” dinner party at the home of one of Becky’s old show-choir friends. Some of the guests she’s known for 20 years, some she hasn’t seen since high school. Sebastian doesn’t want to go and is convinced that the dinner’s hosts are Swingers and just looking for a “hook-up”…and he’s going to prove it. Becky thinks he’s nuts and so they place a bet and hilarity ensues with each trying to win what it is they think they want most from the other.

Speakers' Event - Mammoet Canada - The Triple Bottom Line

I was thrilled to be a part of this wonderful event and to speak about the development of people and how they are the key to an organization's sustainability! A huge shout out to everyone who organized this day and to all the other speakers involved! - Nicole Grainger

"The challenges associated with a fast changing and shrinking economy demand we search for alternatives in order to differentiate ourselves from the pack. No longer can we operate on a single pillar of results and expect to achieve success...a strong emphasis has been directed to the triple bottom line and ultimately planning a sustainable approach to our business. Like many of us, our values instill in us a sense of care and duty to that upon which we have an impact. It is the goal of this event to present information that elicits dialogue and creates thought about our capabilities. - Mammoet Canada

Unsuspicious - by Maria Colonescu

  • Edmonton International Fringe Festival: Venue 4 (map)

You are cordially invited to an intimate hour of tea, oleander, secrets and sins.  Three generations of women tell you their stories, share their spirit of survival, and the depths of their depravity.
***Winner - Outstanding New Work, StageStruck! 2016***

"Though unquestionably strong, they are beautifully flawed. What’s more is that they see and love each other for their whole selves without prejudice... you will belly laugh, gasp with terror, sink with sorrow, and most importantly, you will not be able to take your eyes off of them." - Alberta Theatre Guide
