Description

Welcome to Blakkat Theatre, home of the improv comedy troupe Kerfuffle!

Please permit us to introduce our Cast of Players:

NELLIE WOLFE: age 28, recent orphan, pregnant disabled avenger and sword thief

ANDY MCLEAN: age 21, redhead, devoted bike rider and aspiring Anarchist

CONSTANZIA FORGIONE: age 28, reluctant waitress, emerging gay poet and Nellie's BFF

CALVAIRE PERSONNE: age 29, PHD candidate, brother to a living sister and a dead twin

SHERMAN SILVERSTEIN: turning 30, father, maker of Jesus Toast, married, for now

YOU, OUR AUDIENCE-PARTICIPANT: at every age, your input is an essential ingredient

Kerfuffle is a seriously funny book about serious matters. Jumping on and off stage, the troupe do their best to make sense and nonsense of their lives and the 2010 Toronto G20 protests. Uncertain which player is her baby daddy, nine-months-pregnant Nellie Wolfe wields her crutch as both prop and weapon to hunt him down. She bands with feminist friends to teach the troupe's male members about the responsible use of their members. From hidden weapons to the marketing of Jesus Toast, simmering personal and political secrets build to an explosive on-stage reveal. It's an inside-Anarchy exposé of G20's crucible moments from black balaclavas to a burning police car to life inside the kettle. As satire at its best, it offers both belly laughs and a demand for justice.
