June 19 2022 – Apt613 Reviews “Arthur Bampot and the Case of the Kept Man”
“Somewhere up there, Leslie Nielsen (of “Don’t call me Shirley” fame) is laughing and taking notes.”
It that’s not the highest possible praise, we don’t know what is.
March 24th 2018 – Dangerous Dames Theatre @ Slowcooker Vol 1
Dames Sarah and Becky submitted to a local festival, Slowcooker, for a live reading of a snippet of their upcoming production Skirts in the Forest.
Of the three scripts read that evening, our dames came away with the title of audience favourite!
The full production opened at the 2019 Ottawa Fringe Festival, and the Dames were thrilled to unleash it on the unsuspecting populace. The audience didn’t complain much, either!
The Dames were honoured and delighted to win the national competition’s third prize, the Gladys Cameron Watt award. The adjudicator praised the play, saying:
“A careening and ingenious, laugh-out-loud Shakespearean satire. Four of the Bard’s comic heroines must overcome their differences to navigate the “Forest of Lost Plots” and find their way back to their own plays. High farce, romance, female-bonding and Hamlet-bashing ensue. Not to mention the weirdest sword fight this side of the Complete Works.”
It was extremely gratifying that someone was as amused by reading about that sword fight as the Dames were while writing it.
