While you all are swooning over the Oscars, The Sufferettes have been working on a new video project. There's a little on set still above to pique your curiosity.
We are hustling to get this done in time to enter the Rapid Fire Theatre Online Video Competition. We are also hoping to submit this (or maybe something else if we want to make ourselves really busy) to the 2013 Laugh Sabbath Film Festival in June. Both of these companies are totally worth checking out for their prolific video and live work. Laugh Sabbath is also currently running an indiegogo campaign to fund their festival. You can pick up cool perks like cheap tickets to their live shows that come with complimentary drinks! Of course you can always donate to support any of the programming Rapid Fire, does, too. They can give you a tax receipt!
Oh, and when we say we are hustling, we actually mean our incredible director and editor and sound mixer, Allison Johnston, is hustling. Holy crap, is she amazing!
You should also check out our luminous guest star, Kathleen Phillips, while you wait for this vid to drop. She's a treat and a half.

Half Hearted.

A huge thank you to Reverend Aitor for delivering this absolutely stunning tour poster to us recently. The retired Reverend is notoriously difficult to find these days, so we are deeply honoured that he decided to take this project on with such fervour.
He also decided to name our 2013 tour 'Half Hearted'. Hopefully this name does not speak to our skill or commitment. We happily accept most insinuations of our dual brokenness.

Letters of Suffering.

Big News!

Our friend Jeff is visiting Toronto from Seoul, South Korea, and we have managed to finagle a double bill with him while he is here.

He is going to do some comedy, read some letters and generally be a charming giant.

We are going to do some improv, move our bodies in weird ways and then do something with Jeff.

It is all going to be really fun.

Why did we not have the presence of mind to get a picture with Bret Hart last night? He stole the show at Catch23 as the third round guest and slam dunked every joke in our scene with him (wrestlers slam dunk, right?).

Instead, enjoy this one photograph of Becky with Rowdy Roddy Piper who guested in Mantown, beat up Jason DeRosse and proved himself to be just a lovely person.

Whoa. What a night.

What Bret Hart, Roddy Piper and The Sufferettes Have in Common.

We're all doing catch23 together tonight. What? We know. Crazy but true.
Bret "The Hitman" Hart and "Rowdy" Roddy Piper are stepping up to be the guest judges at our home-base show tonight.
Who wants to see what they make of The Sufferettes? We do.
We are also joined on stage by Peter Stevens, Gary Rideout Jr., Matt Folliott & Brendan Halloran. What a crew!
Oh, and there may be bagpipes involved.
