From September 5-15, there are more than 600 performances by 89 artists over 11 days on Granville Island & at other theatrical venues around the city. I wanted to let you know about one Fringe show in particular this year: “Glowing: A Reproduction Production”. To help promote the show, I'm giving away tickets!
Before I get to the contest details, let me give you a quick synopsis of the show:
You've heard that old chestnut about pregnant woman having that "glow", right? For Mary-Jo Dionne... not so much. Mary-Jo, writer and performer of “Glowing: A Reproduction Production” was inspired to create her darkly comic one-woman show after she experienced her last episode of melanoma during an already-horrific pregnancy.
Mary-Jo's thirty-minute performance covers her experiences as a 40-year-old woman who, after countless obstacles, including adoption attempts, eventually becomes pregnant – resulting in an experience that is anything but a glowing one. As if all-day "morning" sickness isn't bad enough, at seven months along, a cancer diagnosis leaves her deciding whether or not she should go through with a potentially life-saving amputation.
