From the Fringe program:

A Weird-larious One-Man Musical Road Trip!

This is a wild new world (and Canadian premiere) from Paul Strickland, writer/performer of last year's hit Ain't True & Uncle False (5 STARS - Winnipeg Free Press) and 2016's Papa Squat ("a minor miracle", 5 STARS - CBC).

Travel to a strange town where creaky doors sing with you, libraries are separate from truth-braries, and extraordinary stories are shared through yarn and tin can.

David Lynch meets The Wizard of Oz in this one-man musical comedy!

Show Length: 60 minutes
Suggested Audience: Parental Guidance
Warnings: Mild Language
