Til Death & No Tweed Too Tight

Til Death by Ryan Gladstone
No Tweed by Ryan Gladstone with Bruce Horak
Tickets: Adult $30 | Senior $25 | Student $15
Two blockbuster fringe hits in one side-splitting evening of thrills!
Six Queens. Six Love stories. Six Deaths. One Actress!
It all starts in the afterlife, in a bizarre waiting room of sorts. One by one, the wives of Henry VIII arrive, much to the shock and dismay of each previous wife. What culminates is a heated frenzy of an ex-wives club where these women swap stories, toss Anne Boleyn’s head around, pick on the ugly German one, and, most importantly, fight for the right to be acknowledged as Henry’s true bride and eternal partner.
But when Henry arrives…everything changes.
No Tweed Too Tight: Another Grant Canyon Mystery
More belligerent than an orangutan at a monkey shaving contest. More uncaring than a potato salad at a funeral. As inexplicable as a… you wouldn’t understand.
The year is 1976. Grant Canyon is a perpetually inebriated insurance investigator. Every scene starts with him coming to consciousness on an airplane with no pilots (or getting buried alive, or on a Russian sub), and every scene ends with him either getting knocked out or drinking himself into oblivion. In his few coherent moments he leaves a wake of dead bodies, satisfied ladies, and empty bottles as he staggers toward a shocking and fiery conclusion.
”…one of the most impressive acting feats in the festival!” – Kevin Prokosh, Winnipeg Free Press
“Tara Travis is an immense talent. Go see this show and you will find yourself in heaven. Comedy heaven that is.” -umfm.com, Winnipeg
“We’ve all heard about Henry VIII and his six wives. But you’ve never heard the story told like it is in Ryan Gladstone’s Til Death: The Six Wives of Henry VIII. Equal parts comedy, tragedy and reality TV show, the one-woman play brings wicked humour and a humanizing touch to the women’s story. Finally, a note on Tara Travis: her talent cannot be overstated. Her performance is absolutely astonishing and is reason alone to see the show.” –soundandnoise.com, Edmonton
“Ryan Gladstone brings the house down as Grant Canyon, hard-drinking, ultra-hip investigator with his own theme song.” – Winnipeg Free Press
“Ryan Gladstone’s Grant Canyon simultaneously channels Captain Kirk and Elvis as he swaggers, swoons and power drinks his way from Des Moines to Tallahassee to outer space.”-CBC
