AWARD WINNING GENDER-BENDING FEMINIST COMEDY
Hot off her international tour, award winning Canadian Clown Artist Candice Roberts assumes her alter ego Larry in a comedic piece about a stereotype of a beer-guzzling regular guy who attempts to be a woke feminist without compromising his masculinity. Robert’s uses Larry to explore her experiences growing up as a female in rural BC, Canada in the 1980s. Culled from the socially dominant, homophobic male archetypes that surrounded her during her upbringing, Larry helps her compassionately examine the limitations of the gender binary, the complexity of what it means to be human, and makes people laugh.

“A highly skilled physical comedian, and, as you’ll see in the course of Larry, [Roberts’s] bravery is virtually unlimited” – Liz Nichols
“This superior, adult-oriented clowning comedy is far deeper than it first appears. It’s funny, weird and telling — with something important to say.”- Orlando Sentinel
“I don’t transcend in the theatre on a regular basis, but Larry opened me up and took me to a higher plane. Roberts’s clowning technique is first-rate — once she gets you laughing, she will not fucking let up.”- Colin Thomas – Simply the Best of 2019
This is a daring, weird, hilarious show with headbanging, so basically everything you could want.” – Andrea Warner, Georgia Straight
