In this new monologue by Edmonton’s Kenneth Brown, the audience is sitting in the place of a parole board as convicted terrorist Grumpus attempts to justify his geriatric anarchist actions.

What transpires is a rant from a cranky old guy, which includes such revelations as the world is going to hell in a handcart, men and women will never change and we should stop giving teenagers cellphones and give them fishing rods instead.

Oh yeah, and the thing that ultimately led to the attempt at terrorism was an abduction by extra-terrestrial dolphins who, through the magic of gene therapy, have rendered Grumpus incapable of suffering fools.

Sigh. Brown’s character is on the money, but the rant is too convoluted even for someone whose meds are a little off.

— Wendy King

 

From the Fringe program:

Grumpus sits before his Parole Board, trying to convince them to let him out of jail for an offence he could not help committing- because he was so damn mad. Grumpus will persuade you that not only was this anarchic act an historical necessity, it was an evolutionary responsibility! Jonathan Swift meets Sh*t My Father Says.

With Grumpus Gets Revenge Kenneth Brown (the Spiral Dive Trilogy, Minding Dad, Letters in Wartime) returns to the one-man show format for the first time in ten years.
