Upcoming Performances

Brown Wasp pulls you into the funny, self-deprecating world of Sarah St. John, a Canadian woman in the throes of an edgy inner journey through illness, healing and redemption.


Sarah, with husband in tow, travels to Manitou Springs, Saskatchewan, hoping for a cure in the spa’s restorative waters. Sarah’s reflections on the horrors of disease and her ravaged physical body are both wickedly funny and beautifully evocative. 


Performer Megan McArton is “seamless, stirring, a joy to behold” .(Rory Runnells, Winnipeg Free Press)
