Reading Robertson Davies on Rangitoto

Lewd. Antisocial. Conceited.


All Canadians are quiet, polite, and boring, right? Not these girls. Josephine, Cleo, and Vicki are brash, sarcastic, and have just been set loose on the other side of the world. After all, when your best friend loses her husband, what else is there to do but use it as an excuse to hit the open road for a vacation full of sheep, volcanoes, boyfriends, and hockey sticks? In the twin shadows of a Kiwi volcano and a Canadian literary giant, these Canucks are out to find the vacation of their dreams. Of course, with Josephine looking for adventure, Vicki searching for herself, and Cleo headed to the beach, this road trip isn’t exactly likely to be a smooth ride . . .

Three interlocking comic monologues, written by Toronto’s Slightly Skewed Productions, and performed by troupe alumnus Jordan Hall, Reading Robertson Davies on Rangitoto will change your opinion of Canadians, tourists, and all the strange life forms in between.

From the writers and directors of the award-winning From Grace, and the 2004 Toronto Fringe’s 21 Rants About Working in a Drugstore, Reading Robertson Davies on Rangitoto is part of a new play in development for Slightly Skewed.

Reading Robertson Davies on Rangitoto will be performing February 23, 24, & 25th and March 2, 3, & 4 at 7:15 pm at The Wellington City YHA.
