Hey there, time traveller!

Montreal-based storyteller Al Lafrance is no stranger to the Winnipeg fringe, but with I Think I'm Dead, audiences get to know him on a more personal level as he discusses a battle with insomnia that began in his teens and was a catalyst — both directly and indirectly — to a whole host of other physical and mental ailments.
Lafrance is an incredibly deft and engaging performer, as comfortable dropping witty one-liners as he is discussing the deepest, darkest corners of depression. His fast-paced dialogue style can be a bit overwhelming at first, but quickly becomes part of his charm as a storyteller.

From the Fringe program:
Insomnia keeping you up at night? Well, it's also ruining Al's life.
I Think I'm Dead is a caffeine-fuelled comedic storytelling journey into one man's struggles with unconsciousness. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wonder whether or not you're alive!
