Reviews to help you through the hit-or-miss loveliness that is the Calgary Fringe Festival
Grim & Fischer has won the Best of Fest at this year's Fringe Festival!
The show, done entirely in mask, is a highly professional production with an amazing sound design. The masks are these huge, bulbous heads that, actually, are strangely appealing.
Briefly, Grim & Fischer involves the Grim Reaper as he comes calling on Mrs. Fischer to take her to her appointment with Death. Mrs, Fischer, however, has other plans. She isn't ready to die and outwits "Grim" using such things as a whoopee cushion and a bathroom scale.
It's a funny, delightful, creative, artistic show with some moments of real pathos.
Because of its win, Grim & Fischer will have an extra showing on Saturday, August 6 at 1:00 at the Alexandra Centre.
