4 Stars/5 Winnipeg Sun

Men beware, this play might offend your tender Victorian senses!
The powerful coming-of-age story of Colette Kendall is an austere expose of growing up as a young, protestant, naive-but-burgeoning woman in the late 1970s and an emerging love of, well, you know.
This one-woman show is honest, revealing and will have you laughing from the moment the lights dim to the moment you leave. But don’t be fooled; it's not all fun and games. Serious moments are interwoven to create a well-rounded and empowered performance.
One warning to anyone who likes to sit in the front row: Kendall will interact with you, which is hilarious if you’re in the mood.
From the creator of the Canadian Comedy Award-nominated Tippi Seagram’s Happy Hour and Who’s Afraid of Tippi Seagram?, Kendall delivers a show that will make you laugh from the bottom of your belly with her unforgettable stories.
