While the King is away, the people of England suffer under the oppressive rule of his tax-happy brother, Prince John. Only a straight arrow like Robin Hood, the best archer in the land, can save England! By stealing from the rich and giving back to the poor, Robin keeps the spirit of justice alive – with the help of a few friends along the way. But what if the Prince and the dreaded Sheriff of Nottingham lay a trap for our hero? With all the humour and fun you’ve come to expect, DuffleBag hits the mark with this on-target tale of derring-do!

God is a Scottish Drag Queen by Mike Delamont

Thursday April 12, 2018 - 7:30pm

This highly acclaimed one-man comedy has become the most popular show on the Canadian Fringe Festival circuit. Written and performed by a 15 time ‘Best of the Fest’ winner and three-time Canadian Comedy Award Nominee, the star in this play is everyone’s favourite deity. Dressed in a floral power suit, the omnipotent playwright as the Almighty descends from above to skewer everything from Justin Bieber to the Pope. 

 In “one of the funniest stand-up routines ever,” according to the Orlando Weekly, God has chosen to present himself to the audience in order to clear up some misunderstandings about himself and his role as the Creator. “Hilarious, divinely and wickedly funny,” (Montreal Gazette), this show is a way for God to let off some steam about what humans have been doing and not doing, and to share how he will stay calm regardless.

Tickets: $20
