The Wild Things aren’t done with you yet: Fringe holdovers next week in three locations

There Ain’t No More, starring Willi Carlisle, Breaker/Fixer Productions

By Liz Nicholls, 12thnight.ca

The Wild Things haven’t finished with you yet, my theatre-hungry friends.

The 38th annual edition of our summer theatre bash might end Sunday night. But you get a reprieve on some of the Fringe hits you haven’t managed to catch yet, at three locations.

Fringe Theatre Adventures is holding over a quartet of hit shows next week, Wednesday through Saturday Aug. 31, at the Westbury Theatre (aka Fringe Stage 1). The Green Line by Makram Ayache is the play, set in war-torn Beirut. See the 12thnight.ca review HERE. TEDxRFT is an improvised TED Talk created on the spot from  slides the participants have never seen and topics from the audience they don’t know in advance. Reality Crack is a strange and wonderful two-hander set in the fissure between reality and nightmare. There Ain’t No More is a highly original solo “musical” by and starring Arkansas’s Willi Carlisle that dives into the American folklore repertoire for its characters and its tragedies. 

Tickets and schedule: fringetheatre.ca, 780-409-1910.
