A wonderfully titled comedy about parents who know too much or know too little about their kids and the journey of discovery, or: how to pull your head out of the sand and stop being an ostrich.
But wait, the show tells us that is a myth. Just as it’s a myth to call this play by Matt Murray just a comedy. This is a comedy with heart.
The zany insightful show is at the Victoria Theatre through September 2nd.
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.
