She The People Does Mirvish - CAA Theatre Feb 2020!
SHE THE PEOPLE - The first all-female-identifying sketch revue in Second City's 50 year history. After winning the Canadian Comedy Award for 'Best Live Ensemble', this glorious show got picked up by MIRVISH! I am absolutely beside myself to get to perform on a MIRVISH stage! One week only! Feb 4th-9th 2020.
The future is here and it’s female! The ladies of Second City return with She The People – a sketch show entirely created, designed, and performed by the fearlessly funny women of The Second City- for everyone to enjoy! This mimosa-and-madness-fueled foray roasts the patriarchy, taking on everything from having it all…to having that sick feeling your government is trying to send you back to the Middle Ages. So get ready to laugh Toronto as the resistance continues!
Performed by: Ann Pornel, Ashley Comeau, Karen Parker, Kirsten Rasmussen, Paloma Nuñez, and Tricia Black
Written by: Carisa Barreca, Alex Bellisle, Marla Caceres, Katie Caussin, Carly Heffernan, Maria Randazzo, Rashawn Nadine Scott, Tien Tran, Kimberly Michelle Vaughn, Lauren Walker and The Casts of The Second City.
