★★★★ CBC Manitoba “the best queer show you’ll see at Fringe this year”
★★★★½ Winnipeg Free Press “Wessler teases apart the Gordian knot that is family with heart, wit, and incredible nuance”
Weaving together verbatim perspectives of four generations, "Old Dyke Tales" tells the true story of a matriarch who dared to set aside the societal and religious expectations of 1970s Catholic suburbia, in order to discover her sexuality and true self. This one-woman show combines poetry, puppets, politics, prayer, and personal interviews, into the story of daughter, mother, grandmother, and lover. Come and explore the acceptance of lesbianism in families, in schools, in churches, in the passage of time, and in oneself.
All shows at 8pm. Tickets 10/15 at the door or online here!
