Winnipeg Free Press - ONLINE EDITION
Andrew is the caretaker at a downtown Victoria church, trying to help that city’s army of drug addicts without getting besieged by them. When he’s not speed-mowing the lawn, he’s ministering as best he can to the people shooting up on the grounds. These encounters, including ones with a young psychopath, allow Andrew to explore the fluid nature of justice and morality, his own and the street’s.
This is another mature, insightful and often funny monologue from Victoria’s Andrew Bailey, who deserves more fringe fame than he has. His natural rhythm is great. Sharp details meld with big questions. The moments of impending violence are really tense, then Bailey’s nebbishy self-analysis breathes a sigh of relief into things. One quibble: Bailey’s characters could be a touch more clearly drawn.
— Mary Agnes Welch
From the Fringe program:
Imagine Woody Allen stuck in The Wire. Award-winning comedian Andrew Bailey draws on a decade's experience as an inner-city church caretaker to explore how justice is brought to those who don't call the police.
