An Evening with Mary Walsh
featuring Sharron Matthews
April 18, 2015
Bella Rose Arts Centre
Canadian cultural icon, comedienne, and social activist Mary Walsh performs some of her best comedic bits and characters along with up-to-the-minute local political satire in this one-night only evening of hilarity. Mary was featured at the Stages Theatre Festival in 2013 with a sold-out run of her one woman show Dancing with Rage. This Spring she returns with a new variety show featuring a mix of classic and brand new material. Mary is joined on stage by Sharron Matthews who’ll serve up her signature irreverent wit and solid gold pop mash-ups. Individual tickets will go on sale in mid-October, but those buying Subscription Passes can book their tickets and seats now.
“The show covers pretty much everything, life, death, love, aging, feminism, anger, a search for happiness, alcoholism and politics and is screamingly funny, irreverent and poignant at the same. It’s the kind of show where you can’t help laughing at something that you feel a bit guilty about finding funny. I loved it.” -Sam Mooney, Mooney on Theatre, on Dancing With Rage
