A one night only event celebrating solo sketch comedy on International Women's Day. Directed by Kirsten Rasmussen, Flying Solo: An International Women's Day Spectacular will feature some of Toronto's emerging solo acts including Rabiya Mansoor, Rena Taylor, Anna Smith, Meg MacKay.
Anna Smith’s Solo Sketch Show is fast-paced, playful and dynamic! Like Barbie, Anna wants to be MANY things in life, a country singer, a dance teacher, a waiter who tells customers how he REALLY feels, and this show lets her at least pretend. Through her roster of thrilling and loveable characters you can expect original upbeat songs and dances based on true fear! Though constantly afraid, Anna and her characters try to see the best the world has to offer.
Rabiya Mansoor Live! in Concert is a solo musical & character sketch show that highlights and celebrates daily life. Come and clap along, sing along, cry along, and laugh along the strange situations we can find ourselves in. Life is specifically weird - so why not comedy, too?
Rena Warrior Princess is a one-woman showcase where Rena battles her demons and dismantles her foes with the power of laughter, words, and imitations. Previously part of Montreal based duo “Ricky”, Rena Princess Warrior is Rena's first solo showcase on her quest to showcase her finest fierce, femme and funny sketches. Join in on the chuckles while she fights ennui, sadness, misogyny, and ignorance onstage through the use of her ridiculous characters, her odd physical comedy, and country charm.
Meg MacKay is a complete dingus. She's high energy, and has an overactive imagination. A professor once called her "Carol Burnett on acid". She hates that. She's sorry.
