Today’s Vancouver International Fringe Festival ticket giveaway is in support of two seperate productions.

Written & Performed by Morgan Brayton

“I hope you will come and see my new show. It is a collection of comedic character monologues interspersed with songs. I wear costumes. I think you’ll like it. I can tell you are a person who appreciates monologues/songs/costumes/thevalueofadollar. More info on Raccoonery! can be found on the Shows page. A preview of a few of the songs can be found on the Music page. Promotional photos of me can be found on the Press page. Man, do I have to tell you where everything is? Sorry, I didn’t mean to snap at you. I’m just tired.”

The winner will receive a pair of tickets for the opening night performance, September 9th at 6:45pm at Performance Works on Granville Island.

Dead Man’s Cell Phone
Written by Sarah Ruhl
“An incessantly ringing cell phone in a quiet café. A stranger at the next table who has had enough. And a dead man-with a lot of loose ends. So begins Dead Man’s Cell Phone, a wildly imaginative new comedy by playwright Sarah Ruhl, recipient of a MacArthur “Genius” Grant and Pulitzer Prize finalist for her play The Clean House. Dead Man’s Cell Phone, is an odyssey of a woman forced to confront her own assumptions about morality, redemption, and the need to connect in a technologically obsessed world.”

I have 5 pairs of tickets to give away for this performance tomorrow night at 11:00pm over at the Firehalls Arts Centre.

Please leave a comment to enter to win a pair of tickets to either show, simply state your preference in your entry. I will draw the winners tonight at 5:00pm.

Update My winner for Raccoonery! is Sir. The five winners for Dead Man’s Cell Phone are…SR, LG, Teresa, Lucy and Beth.

The Vancouver International Fringe Festival launches this week with over 600 performances from 83 shows at over two dozen venues around the city. From September 9th until the 19th Fringe will host shows from pop-up “Bring Your Own Venues” outdoors around Vancouver to seven main stages.

    I’ve got some media passes, so I’m not actually leaving a comment to win tickets. But I did want to say that I saw a production of “Dead Man’s Cell Phone” a couple of years ago in…Chicago, I think, and I thought it was pretty terrific. I can’t speak to this production, obviously, but the script was pretty great.
