WINNIPEG — Political incorrectness and satire take centre stage in the upcoming beer and kits show BS Comedy Players.
Its early origins from 1984 included men-only performers, but the show has since taken on a more inclusive since 2008. This year, the #TimesUp movement finds itself in one sketch during two shows at Prairie Theatre Exchange, May 10-11.
Remember being sat down to hear about the birds and the bees? A new production at Prairie Theatre Exchange delves deeper, but is literally set against a backdrop of actual birds and bees. (Get your mind out of the gutter).
“The Birds and the Bees” is a comedy about sex, love and relationships, following characters who navigate romantic emotion and all the extras that come along with it.
Mother knows best. Or in this case, Mom’s the Word.
That’s the new comedic production currently running at Prairie Theatre Exchange looking at the world of motherhood. Anecdotes, or “mom”-ologues as PTE calls them, make up this refreshed play written by six Vancouver actors.
“I’m looking forward to introducing it to a new generation of parents,” said PTE artistic director Robert Metcalfe. “But I also think it will remind those of us whose small-child-parenting days are behind us, just what an incredible journey we took with our little ones.”
