WILD/SOCIETY: two two-hander lady comedies billed back to back, about fancy animals
and saving the environment.
By Mika Laulainen
Featuring Mika Laulainen & Melissa Oei
Directed by Brian Cochrane & Jamie King

In the Oscar Wilde inspired WILD, a city rabbit and a country raccoon face the housing market crisis. Rabbit aims to be the most popular city lady when she moves to the newest development in town. Raccoon couldn’t care less about social politics. What will
the city ladies think of Raccoon? Why haven’t they shown up yet? What is this bulldozer doing outside?

In the Beckett styled SOCIETY, two executive penguins bide their time after being forced into hiding. They get very drunk, very high, and deny global warming. A modern day pool party… but the weather is way too cold for July. And what are all these icebergs doing inthe pool?

“Extremely clever… If you want to see a Fringe play that might drive social or political
action, see WILD/SOCIETY!” -Mooney on Theatre

“The puns are fun, and the show is short and whimsical… Laulainen and Oei have great
ebergy as they work as a team in both competition and collaboration.” -My
Entertainment World

“WILD/SOCIETY will reward you with a cherrful, cryptic indictment of humanity.” -Jesse
Gazic, Blogger

“Climate change is a hot topic for animated discussion in this two-part comedy
performed by the dynamic Vancouver duo of Melissa Oei and writer-actor Mika
Laulainen.” -Pat St. Germain, Winnipeg Free Press

“Well delivered performances from the brilliant duo of Mika Laulainen… Lots of witty one
liners” -Doug Kretchmer, Community News Commons
