Hey there, time traveller!

Silver-tongued salesman Sam Saginaw’s snake oil is the genuine article — guaranteed to cure what ails you and bring riches, vitality, love and eternal happiness besides.
The well-oiled Ottawa production penned by veteran fringe wordsmith Jayson McDonald is sure to please, with top-flight performances from Zach Counsil (Batboy: The Musical) and Hannah Gibson-Fraser as Sam’s mousey sidekick Rabbit.
Sam’s exhausting rapid-fire pitches are balanced by Rabbit’s deceptively simple interruptions, shadow-box parables and a back-story revelation that packs a nice wallop in an entertainment-value-packed 45 minutes — even if it is considerably less than the 75 minutes advertised.
