    Your Rating

Lady Winifred (Dewey Chaffee) is no lady. The statuesque, screechy-voiced prima donna has just emerged from a 19-year, stroke-induced coma and you never know what will come out of her foul, droopy, overly made-up mouth.

It might be a show tune, or maybe a rape joke. You can bet your ascot there will be insults, slurs and F-bombs. And Winnie’s English boy toy (Douglas McGeoch) is about as authentically genteel as he is macho.

There are no ethnic or racial sacred cows in this Regina duo’s one-hour show, which lazily relies on unladylike language for too many of its laughs. There are also no safe seats in the house since the whole thing is mostly ad-libbed interaction with the audience. Check your political correctness at the door, dah-ling.

— Carolin Vesely

From the Fringe program:

From the performer-creators of The Screw You Revue, 2010 Winnipeg Best of Fest winner, comes a completely NEW duo of over-the-top characters.

Lady Winifred, a recent coma survivor, is joined by her fey boy toy, Gerald Ashleigh Young, to regain the notoriety she once enjoyed. Together, the duo acclimate Lady Winifred to a world of cell phones, 24-hour news cycles and a black US President.
