As Winnipeggers, we are supposed to hate the Saskatchewan Roughriders, but it’s impossible to dislike perky Colleen Sutton, who scores a touchdown with her autobiographical, 75-minute, one-woman go-go-go show about being a member of Riderville and bleeding green and white.

Sutton describes how she fell in love with the Canadian Football League, a career change, the illness of a friend and some hard financial times. She has a suitcase filled with everything from ponchos to pompoms to get you in the mood for game day and the biggest game of all, the Grey Cup. (Sorry about that 2009 game, Colleen.)

— Rob Williams

From the Fringe program:

Sax on the sideline, first on the field, RiderGirl is Grey Cup bound. A piece of the prairies, she bleeds green, talks trash and never misses a play. Knowing the rules like the back of her hand doesn't stop the numbers game from tripping her up and she really needs a touchdown. Come in your colours, game time is here! Two-time Rideau Award nominee Colleen Sutton will energize your inner fan.
