Head in the Sand at the Victoria Playhouse

Matt Murray’s Uproariously Funny Play

Myth of the Ostrich

When Pam finds a letter from her teenage son to his sweetheart, she turns up unannounced to discuss matters with the other teen’s mother Holly. What begins pleasantly enough soon becomes a complicated, bizarre, and hilarious roller-coaster ride of misunderstandings. The confusion only escalates with the arrival of Holly’s outrageous and filter-less friend, Cheryl.

When Dutch is a Must See

“Connolly’s thoughtful performance serves the complexity of a flawed human well. A slight nod of approval or a glint briefly startled out of his eyes become important moments.”

Head in the Sand

After Pam finds a letter from her teenage son to his sweetheart, she turns up unannounced to discuss matters with the other teen’s mother Holly.  What starts as a pleasant visit quickly becomes a complicated, bizarre and hilarious roller-coaster ride of misunderstandings. The mess and confusion of the precarious situation escalates with the arrival of Holly’s outrageous and filter-less friend, Cheryl. Now it just remains to be seen whose head is buried deepest in the sand!

“Myth of the Ostrich is a knockout comedy. It’s got sharp insight and laughs a’plenty. I’m still giddy more than an hour later.” – Mooney on Theatre

“A smart comedy like this deserves the widest audience possible.” – Stage Door

“The play feels so real that it would be understandable if you forgot you were in a theatre, at least until the next belly-laugh comes along.” – Charlebois Post

Myth of the Ostrich opens August 4th at the Victoria Playhouse.

“Wright’s well-written, well-performed show is uproariously funny, achingly sad, and frequently thought-provoking. Though it’s a one-act play, it feels like a full theatrical meal with plenty of entertainment value and heart. Wherever she is, I’m sure Regina is both flattered and proud.”
