“One of Canada’s top comedians, Cathy Jones bares her soul in a seemingly erratic but brilliant performance guaranteed to deliver belly laughs – and lots of them.” – Halifax Chronicle Herald

In this new production, Gemini Award-winning actress and comedian Cathy Jones gets personal as she shares her unique perspective on a variety of topics from food to money, and from the troublesome people in her life to the benefits of laughter.

Written and performed by Jones and directed by Ann-Marie Kerr, Stranger to Hard Work is a hilarious mix of stand-up and character sketch comedy that blasts into the realms of creative struggles, daily neuroses and self-deprecation, as well as aging, sex and competitive Facebook posts.
