$13 General Admission
Queer performer Laura Piccinin recants a lifetime of coming outs in a tell-all comedic stand-up story hour. This hilarious and sentimental autobiography reflects on a single journey that spans 3 decades of change in perceptions and treatment of LGBTQ+ people. As an ex-religious Queer, Laura grapples with a shifting identity and unease in sense of self, eventually navigating her way to pride.
After making her debut at the Toronto Fringe Festival, and receiving the “Patron’s Pick” award at Factory Studio, Laura will be road-tripping across the country to perform at Saskatoon, , Nanaimo, Victoria and Kelowna Fringes this summer. After performing as a comedienne with Just for Laughs (2017, 2018) writing and performing in the new Canadian musical, “Every Silver Lining” in association with Toronto Fringe, 2019 (Patron’s Pick) and Next Stage, 2020, this new work will be a launching point for Laura’s solo artistic career.
“Part stand-up, part personal storytelling, Piccinin stands behind a mic and tells us her coming out stories. Sharply observed, tightly delivered—and finding laughter in the pain—for an entertaining and insightful, out and proud ride”. –Cate McKim, Life with More Cowbell
