Fringe Pick: Fruitcake

Posted by Paloma / June 14, 2010

British-born Rob Gee brings a decade of experience as a psychiatric nurse to the stage in Fruitcake: Ten Commandments from the Psych Ward. Narrated by a Jamaican-accented woman as the voice of God, Rob recalls his most harrowing tales in his award-winning spoken word style.

It's a wonder that Gee has preserved his sanity after a decade of caring for some of society's most fragile. In a mind-bending verbal torrent, he channels those who live with schizophrenia, addiction and obsessive-compulsive disorder, portraying their at times gruesome stories with compassion and sympathy. The show includes a sing-along reminder that whatever's wrong with us, "it could be worse!" Highly recommended!

You can catch it at Venue 6, Mainline Theatre, 3997 St. Laurent at the following times:

June 15 @ 22.45
June 17 @ 18.45
June 18 @ 21.45
June 20 @ 13.45

Tickets are $10.

I can only agree. Funny and bright at the same time. The sing-a-long at the end makes you think of Monthy Python's "Always look on the bright...".

Sheetrock, basements and crawl spaces are also damp
dark places where mold can potentially grow. Over
an extended time, the consumptions of toxins may
cause a person to develop liver cancer and other potentially terminal
cancers, the Environmental Protection Agency has stated. Check for a company's license and registration details
with the local authorities before you assign them
for the service.
