From Fringe 2018

One Man Pride and Prejudice

Chicken For Supper Productions—Asper Centre for Theatre and Film – U of W

This solo show by Fringe veteran Charlie Ross (of One Man Star Wars, etc.) is less about Jane Austen’s work and more about showing off Charlie’s chops on stage. He had the audience from the get-go, so it’s safe to say they were familiar with his work and wanted more. His costume is divine, though without the promised lace. This show is a romp. Silly, all over the place but it is entertaining enough and fun. If you are wanting a serious rendition of Austen, this is not it; but you will be entertained nonetheless. Ross is a wonderful performer.

This venue is stacked with winners, so stay the day and catch some of the best the Fringe has to offer.
