Old-ish won the Pick of the Fringe Award at the 2018 Nanaimo Fringe. It's about aging and death only WAY funnier! Susan’s fifth one-woman comedy travels the hilarious, rocky road from denial to grudging acceptance of getting older. Her most recent Vancouver hit, Spilling Family Secrets garnered rave reviews at Fringe Festivals across Canada.

“Freedman sparkles … instantly likeable ... you don’t need to be old to appreciate Old-ish.” —Winnipeg Free Press

Reviews from previous shows:
“Pithy and hilarious observations about getting older.” —the Georgia Straight

A wildly dizzying whirl of juggling, giggling, magic and movement, puppetry, PJs, circus and socks, totally tangled together! A unicyclist careens on stage, unpacking a quirky world of clothes-pin towers, erratic toothbrushes and gargantuan grins. Objects swirl into chaotic creation as Janoah constructs a performing-partner puppet from piles of props!

“Silly escapism, and I mean that as a great compliment. ... This artist makes a choice to play before each bit. Like a child on a fancy playground, but mixed with the adult’s years of training.” —First Looks, PortFringe Festival

A dollmaker’s wife, caught between determined guerrillas and a corrupt government, wields the second law of thermodynamics and a broom to find a democratic solution. Much fun ensues.

She said, “How many of us build our families from our friends?” Two friends build an unlikely home in each other in the face of exhaustion, rising rent, and messy relationships. Using choral music, a cappella soundscape, and spoken poetry as the medium, this ensemble explores where the quiet queers go, and how to find family in a transient city.
