"SERIOUSLY FUNNY GIRL" with SHEILA NORGATE
In the 1950s when most Canadians were basking in post-war euphoria, Sheila Norgate’s east-end Toronto family was headed up by two shell-shocked veterans trying to eke out a semblance of normalcy on the dark side of the moon. Somewhere in there Norgate heard the expression “All the world loves a clown”; a turn of phrase that would set the course of her life. Seriously Funny Girl traces Norgate’s flight path from class clown to banker, from painter to performer, through depression and out the other side, proving to all concerned and especially to herself, that she who laughs lasts.
Sheila is a BOLDFest favorite and we look forward to her newest theatre piece which is compelling, poignant and yes, at times funny!
Stay around for dancing later; enjoy the incredible views of the city and the ocean from the top of the Coast Plaza. It's an awesome take of Vancouver!
