ONEymoon - Christel Bartelse on Thursday, Sept. 29, at 8pm. Four-time Canadian Comedy Award nominee Christel Bartelse is bringing her signature high-energy wit to the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe - for the very first time! Her latest production: the Canadian Comedy Award-nominated ONEymoon - a tour-deforce comedy with a sprinkle of dance, improv, and audience participation, not to mention a sneaky tug at the heart. Written and performed by Bartelse (the creator of Fringe hits Chaotica & Significant Me), ONEymoon tells the tale of Caroline Bierman, an uncompromising perfectionist who re-invents society's longstanding convention by doing the unthinkable: she marries herself. Alas, Caroline soon struggles to accept the realities of her new life once the honeymoon phase is over. Join Caroline at her wedding, her ONEymoon, and then back home one year later as she prepares her anniversary dinner and shares her frantic pursuit of domestic bliss - all while oblivious to the obvious: every relationship, even one with yourself, takes a whole lot of work. Cost is $20 including HST.
