Vancouver Fringe Festival review: Gossamer Obsessions

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      If the polysyllabic title draws you in, you’ll appreciate the love of language that Amy Shostak and Paul Blinov exhibit as their pastorally costumed, British-accented personas introduce a series of “wretched parables”, “effervescent gasps of narrative", some of them “ensheened in a glimmering haze of ennui".

      Their keenly literate appreciation of the absurd is on display in sketches that reveal the other side of the Ouija board, a dad who takes the notion of consequences way too personally when his teenage daughter breaks curfew, a pair of academics funded by a Cis Hetero Studies Late Night Poutine Scholarship, and more. Full of weird surprises.
