Poster for "Jake's Gift" (Juno Productions)
For all you Fringe Fest fans who just can't get enough, there are three opportunities to see some big - if very different - Fringe hits.
Jake's Gift- a 2009 Fringe smash that returned to the MTC Warehouse and Manitoba Theatre for Young People last year - is making another visit to Manitoba.
Julia Mackey brings her solo show about a Canadian veteran's return to France to Portage la Prairie on Thursday September 29, and to Winnipeg for one show only on Saturday Oct. 1. The Winnipeg show is a fundraiser for the Military Family Resource Centre, and will be held at the 17 Wing Theatre (680 Whytewold Rd.).
And for something completely different, the "tough cop" spoof Rogue Cop returns with a run at the Ellice Theatre - Oct. 13-15. Rogue Cop was a hit with audiences, and CBC reviewer Clare Lawlor gave it a five-star cheer.
And still on the comedy front, local sketch comedy favourites Hot Thespian Action will perform two Fringe fundraiser shows on Oct. 21 and 22.
