SPILLING FAMILY SECRETS comes to The Edmonton Fringe Festival
At age 11, Susan Freedman snooped in her mother’s closet and found a shoebox full of love letters written by her parents between 1927 and 1937. Today, can the letters spill secrets of their inspiring marriage – and shed light on Susan’s marital misadventures? Come to SPILLING FAMILY SECRETS, playing Aug 13 – 23 at Venue: #10 — Acacia Hall as part of the 2015 Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival.
SPILLING FAMILY SECRETS is a touching remembrance of her parents’ love, and a wry, witty look at how Freedman’s own marital mistakes are a stark and funny contrast to her parents’ idyllic match.
This is Susan Freedman’s fourth one-woman Fringe comedy, and played with great success in 2014 at Toronto, Winnipeg and Victoria Fringes. Her three previous shows have had critically acclaimed sold-out runs across the Canadian Fringe circuit. Directed by Dora-winning writer/performer Rondel Reynoldson (Stage: White Trash Blue Eyes, Platform 9. Film: Man of Steel, Warner Bros).
