“The Gig” by Mark Crawford
May 7 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EDT$10
THE GIG BY MARK CRAWFORD – FRIDAY, MAY 7 AT 7:30PM
Three drag queens have been hired to perform at a private function. The catch? Tonight’s event is a campaign fundraiser for a Conservative politician. As the queens struggle to agree on how to proceed, the campaign manager and rookie candidate attempt to send a message of inclusivity and hope to their voters. Throw in an unimpressed venue technician and a long-standing MP who’s been forced into retirement and honey, this gig will have you gagging. Politics! Sibling rivalry! Wigs! The Gig is a contemporary comedy that asks: what do we do when we don’t see eye-to-eye?
Mark Crawford is also the writer of The New Canadian Curling Club, produced at Alberta Theatre Projects in 2019.
